Storyline Heading
Stars do not live forever. In our universe, one star dies every second. The star that keeps our planet alive, the Sun, is a massive nuclear fusion reactor that scientists estimate has enough fuel to burn for another five billion years. But what if it doesn’t? What will happen to the Earth and to humankind? And could humanity alter the very course of nature if the Sun began to flicker out?

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is a science fiction thriller that veers slightly into horror movie territory toward the end. Those looking for action may not find a whole lot here as the tone is more serious, dramatic, and somewhat downbeat.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Hard-core science fiction fans will likely greet Sunshine with a smile. Others may find this to be an odd motion picture, but there's enough going on that even those who are expecting something flashier should still be engaged.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The special effects in outer space are convincing and remorseless. The drummed-up suspense at the end is not essential, since Boyle and Garland seem more interested in the metaphysics of the voyage;...

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The story begins in the year 2057, as our Sun begins to die and mankind faces the unthinkable: extinction.

Deep into their voyage, far out of radio contact with Earth, the lonely, restless crew hears a distress beacon from the Icarus I, the ship which disappeared without a trace on the same mission seven years earlier. But when an attempt at rescue throws the Icarus II into jeopardy, the increasingly desperate crew soon find themselves literally gripped in the shadow of the Sun, fighting for their lives, their sanity, and the future of us all…
