Ad Astra is a celluloid contradiction. It is a film about the vast expanse of space, yet its story is a very, very personal one. Brad Pitt plays an astronaut who goes out into the cosmos looking to get some closure from the loss of his father on an earlier mission, and he told us the movie really focuses in on these intimate details of his character’s psyche, even though it’s set among the stars.
