The Martian
Ridley Scott
Matt Damon, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels

When a severe storm prompts his colleagues to evacuate a Martian plateau, NASA botanist Mark Watney (Damon) is presumed dead, and he wakes to find himself alone on the vast, arid planet. Though there initially seems to be little hope for Watney, his inventive use of the limited materials at his disposal buys him some time. But how much? The next mission to Mars isn't scheduled to occur for another four years, and even after NASA becomes aware of Watney's survival, there is only so much they can do to accelerate the arduous process of launching a rescue mission. It will take feats of innovation and a giant leap of faith to ensure that Watney prevails. “The Martian is an unapologetically stirring celebration of our ability, as a species, to solve even the most daunting problems via rational thought, step by step by step.” (A.V. Club)
