Storyline

Space Station 76 is a refueling satellite near an alternate-reality Earth, circa 1976. Jessica arrives to serve as the station's new first mate. While she narrates a piece about how she likes the predictability of asteroids, some placidly drifting asteroids are shown colliding in chain-reaction fashion. While at first the station appears normal and the people friendly, Jessica soon discovers that the people on board have issues due to the isolation and stress of being cooped up with one another in a relatively small space far from Earth. This is in addition the usual problems people struggle with, such as infidelity, loneliness, depression, and drug abuse. She tries to make friends and fit in, but, unable to connect meaningfully with anyone, she becomes lonely. She's baffled and disillusioned by the stiff and irritable Captain Glenn, who harbors secrets of his own. She finds herself drawn to Ted, a lonely, married crewman, and his 7 year-old daughter, Sunshine. Ted yearns to reconnect... Written by Ken B.

Heavy-Handed Director Associated to a Disappointing Storyline-
5 May 2017 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The pilot Jessica (Liv Tyler) arrives at the refueling Space Station 76 as the substitute for the former pilot Daniel to work with the alcoholic gay Captain Glenn (Patrick Wilson), who is depressed for missing Daniel. Jessica makes contact with the apparently friendly crew but actually befriends only the mechanic Ted (Matt Borner) and his sensitive seven year-old daughter Sunshine (Kylie Rogers). Ted's unfaithful wife Misty (Marisa Coughlan) is a paranoid Valium addicted woman that has a love affair with the wolf Steve (Jerry O'Connell), who is married to the selfish and neglecting mother Donna (Kali Rocha), and therapy with the robot Dr. Bot. The toxic and manipulative Misty becomes jealous of Jessica and poisons the mind of Sunshine with lies about about her new friend. During the Christmas party, Misty suggests they should play the truth game when secrets are exposed.

"Space Station 76" is one of those movies that does not work for at least two main reasons. First, the heavy hand of director Jack Plotnick that makes a film too dramatic for a dark comedy and too silly for a drama. The disappointing storyline is the second reason exploring themes like homosexuality, drug, alcohol and cigarette abuse, depression, loneliness, infidelity in a dramatic comedy (or shallow and silly drama). The style retro in the future is also weird and the film seems to be sponsored by the tobacco industry. The conclusion, when most of the relationships in Space Station 76 are destroyed and everybody is stranded in the station is absolutely ironic. The music score is the best and maybe unanimity in this film. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Sem Gravidade... Sem Cérebro" ("Without Gravity...Without Brain")
