Christopher Nolan’s new movie Interstellar explores the limits of space and time. With the earth devastated by a crop disease called “the blight,” NASA discovers a wormhole that could promise a brighter future.

Scientists implore explorers, two of whom are played by Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, to travel through the wormhole in hopes of finding a new world for humanity. McConaughey is forced to choose between staying on earth with his children — especially his young, vulnerable daughter Murph, whose grown-up self is played by Jessica Chastain — and finding their future in the cosmos.
