If you are a movie lover like me, you will find the Interstellar (2014) movie very intriguing. The film, set in a dystopian future, sees earth become uninhabitable. Various disasters threaten mankind survival, and a new habitation must be discovered. But to find a new planet for humans, Joseph Cooper, a farmer, and former NASA engineer, has to pilot a spacecraft along with a team of researchers through interstellar travel. Though it wasn’t an easy decision for Cooper to make, especially because of Murph, his daughter, he eventually went on the mission. Overall, it’s a story of love and sacrifice.
