Cloud Atlas (2012) – 172 min 15

Starring: Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent
Genres – Adventure | Drama | Sci-Fi
An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
Everything is connected: an 1849 diary of an ocean voyage across the Pacific; letters from a composer to his lover; a thriller about a murder at a nuclear power plant; a farce about a publisher in a nursing home; a rebellious clone in futuristic Korea; and the tale of a tribe living in post-apocalyptic Hawaii, far in the future.
66% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes
‘Its sprawling, ambitious blend of thought-provoking narrative and eye-catching visuals will prove too unwieldy for some, but the sheer size and scope of Cloud Atlas are all but impossible to ignore.’
Review by Henry Barnes – The Guardian Sunday 9 September 2012
‘An artichoke that fires lasers; montages that span the ages; Jim Broadbent saying “ruddy”; women on conveyer belts in the nuddy; evil oil partisans; bed-hopping artisans; parasitic brain worms; Halle Berry with a perm; sex, death, love, space; cannibals, parables, war, race. Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) and Andy and Lana Wachowski (the Matrix trilogy) are banking on there being something in that lot that catches your eye.’
