Interstellar Movie Summary
Sometime in the near future, the planet is reeling from environmental disaster. War has reduced the population, and a crop disease called blight threatens to starve humanity to death. Joseph Cooper, a former pilot for NASA, and a widower, raises his two children with his father-in-law on his farm. A ghost haunts his daughter, Murphy, whom they call Murph. She thinks the spook lives in her room behind her bookcase. One day after an intense dust storm, a disturbance in gravity leaves a series of lines on the ground. Cooper investigates and realizes that the lines are coordinates.
Cooper and Murph follow the coordinates to a secret NASA facility. There they find artificially intelligent robots, a bunch of scientists trying to launch giant spacecraft, and Dr. Brand, Cooper’s former professor. They learn that a wormhole appeared mysteriously near Saturn some years ago. NASA sent a group of scientists through the wormhole to try and find habitable planets where they can relocate humanity. If they can’t relocate humanity by launching the entire facility into space, plan B is to restart the human race with a warehouse of embryos and a whole lotta love.
They plead with Cooper to pilot the spaceship that will follow up on the former scientists in the wormhole. He agrees, given the imminent threat the humanity on earth. He takes Murph home and breaks the news to her. She takes it poorly, and Cooper has to leave her crying in her room.read full summary
