Imagine being a human curious about earth and all its wonders because you were the first person to ever be born on mars. That’s the premise of The Space Between Us. Asa Butterfield plays said human and the thing he’s most curious about on planet earth is a girl called Tulsa (Brit Robertson)…

The main if not only reason I’m really curious about this movie is the science.

Directed by Peter Chelsom; Gary Oldman, Carla Gugino and BD Wong also star.

The Space Between Us Release Dates: December 16th, 2016 (US); February 10th, 2017 (UK)…

HECTOR & THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS (2014): When Physical Distance Equals Clarity

Directed by Peter Chelsom and starring Simon Pegg, Hector & The Search For Happiness is about a man who realises that change must happen in his life.

Following this realisation, he checks out of his current situation and sets off in search of adventure and an answer to one big question.

During his search foe happiness and what it means, he meets several interesting characters, gets into a few scrapes here and learns plenty, especially about himself.

Chelsom’s movie has a few similarities to Eat Pray Love (2010) and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013). Hector & The Search For Happiness isn’t a terrible movie, but I do prefer the other two.

Whether you need convincing that travel is a good idea or not, this movie does a good job of reminding you of travel’s great ability to help you see things with renewed clarity; whether it’s because of the people you meet whilst away or the physical distance from your daily routine.

For clarity, get some distance.

Happy Hector & The Search For Happiness 🙂
