Earth’s sun is dying and the end for humanity is near. In a last-chance effort to save the planet, a crew of eight men and women venture into space with a device that could reignite the star. However, a distress beacon from a long-lost spaceship triggers a chain of events that throws the crew and its desperate mission into a tailspin.
Danny Boyle’s Sunshine is a visual stunner. It’s not a perfect film but features a fantastic cast, many of which have gone on to higher levels of stardom since. Join us as we discuss the film, its peaks, its flaws, and the many “key” elements from past Sci-fi cinema from which it was clearly influenced. Listen… as Johnny Has the Keys journeys on the ill-fated Icarus II and its noble but dangerous mission, into the depths of space to save the sun and thus humanity.
