The Astronaut’s Wife

On a mission to space, astronaut Johnny Depp's shuttle encounters a strange force

On a mission to space, astronaut Johnny Depp’s shuttle encounters a strange force.

When he returns to Earth, his wife (Charlize Theron) gradually becomes convinced that he’s been taken over by an alien force – not least after she becomes pregnant with twins…

This eerie chiller is more about atmosphere and suggestion rather than explicit shocks. All quiet whispers and ever-escalating suspicion, the suspenseful movie cleverly blurs the line between paranoia and real danger, as Theron steadily loses her grip on the world.

She is exactly right for the role and Depp’s cold-faced performance is out of this world.
