Alfonso Cuaron’s Gravity got a lot of buzz for its stunning visuals and use of 3D that made Ryan Stone’s (Sandra Bullock) fight for survival in space seem very real and atmospheric. The emotional line of this film is the irony that Ryan doesn’t much want to live because she’s still dealing with the death of her kid. Watching her find her determination and will power to survive (with a little help from George Clooney) makes her first steps onto land at the end that much more rewarding. It’s a simple ending — there’s no reunion with anyone on Earth, just Ryan and a remote island. But those hesitant steps forward feel almost like a rebirth for Ryan. Though she has many miles to go (again, she’s not in space anymore but now on what looks like a deserted island), but you get the sense that everything is going to be okay.
