Natalie Portman’s next film, Lucy in the Sky, is about an astronaut who has trouble adjusting to life on Earth after a long mission in space. Of course, Portman is no stranger to sci-fi movies, having appeared in three Star Wars films, but she told us this one is a little different — it’s a more intimate character study that relies much more on her interaction with her co-stars than on technological wizardry. After doing several movies that required a lot of green screen work (including a couple of Thor films), she said Lucy in the Sky was a breath of fresh air.
