Natalie Portman is heading back into space. No, not in the guise of Padmé Amidala, but as Astronaut Lucy Cola. Hot on the heels of Brad Pitt’s, Ad Astra (released 19 September 2019), Lucy in the Sky is another space movie and will have its world premiere at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2019.
Information on Lucy in the Sky is scant (or my searching skills have maxed out), but here’s a (very) simple summary I found…
“After an awe-inspiring experience in outer space, an astronaut returns to Earth and starts to lose touch with reality in a world that now seems too small.”
Yep, it’s light on but let me try to fill in (guess) some gaps. Lucy (Natalie) has been on a mission in space, and the things she encountered start to have a profound effect on her once she returns to Earth. She starts to struggle with coming down from the highs of space. I’d compare it to that feeling you have when you get home after a vacation – yearning for more vacation and less of the real world you have to endure.
Mere ‘normals’ like us just start to plan for the next vacation, but for someone like Lucy, a return to space is a little more complicated. From what I can tell, this is where the story’s main focus lies. Lucy is determined to return to space but the obstacles ahead of her will test her resolve, passion, and sanity.

Lucy in the Sky promises to be more than a space flick and I’m intrigued to know how it all pans out. If the story is told properly, Natalie Portman could be on a winner.
