Lucy in the Sky

If you are expecting to see adult diapers in this new Natalie-Portman-in-space flick, you will be woefully disappointed. Lucy in the Sky is inspired by real-life former astronaut Lisa Nowak, who made headlines in 2007 after being charged with attempted kidnapping of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend. (Nowak drove across five states, possibly while wearing an adult diaper to minimize bathroom stops. Literally wild.) Because Lucy is a “loose” interpretation, the juiciest part of the story didn’t fit anywhere in the movie, according to the director. Reports out of the Toronto International Film Festival have been giving it mixed reviews, but go to see Portman contemplate the emptiness of the universe and the shifting aspect ratios that give insight into her character’s mind.
