Proxima (2019, dir. Alice Winocour)

A female astronaut struggles with having to leave her young daughter on Earth. Sombre, understated ISS mission training movie – with interesting access to Star City and Baikonur – focusing on a single relationship. Eva Green is great though, and Matt Dillon does what he can with an underwritten supporting part. A lovely Ryuichi Sakamoto score helps.

Here’s the trailer.
