Passengers (2016) – Review

In the distant future, a select number of humans attempt to travel to another planet for a better life away from Earth. The journey lasts for decades, so each of the passengers upon the spaceship named Avalon, are put into a state of hibernation. On the journey, however, something unexpected happens – one of the passengers, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), is awoken and must resign himself to not seeing the end of the voyage. Out of loneliness, he starts to question whether or not he should wake other passengers. A fairly unique and well-made film that is currently streaming on Netflix.
