In case anyone hasn't seen this movie, I'm going to try avoid spoilers. The film examines the human experience, the trauma of life, and the emotions of impending death through an intimate study of astronauts attempting to survive in space after getting detached from their shuttle when debris hits during a space walk.
(note: My review was written before Julie posted her review. I'm so happy that Gravity officially counts for horrorthon. It's one of the more traumatic films I've seen, but I was worried that that was because I had trouble expanding my lungs for a few months after a car accident last year and the sound engineers did a damn good job portraying someone without access to lots of oxygen and a lot of access to panic.)
