Chris' Film Club: The Martian

Finally this week we look at 'The Martian', the film based on Andy Weir’s novel and nominated for 7 Oscars.

It stars Matt Damon as Mark Watney, a botanist and astronaut who is part of a 6 person crew on a mission to Mars. When they are forced to abort the mission, Watney is hit by debris and presumed dead, while the rest of the crew escape safely. Turns out, he isn’t so dead, and must survive until he can be rescued.

Directed by Ridley Scott, it also stars Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sean Bean, Kate Mara, Kristen Wiig and Michael Pena.
