There are some really gorgeous shots in here, not just of the space mission moments, but the way Hawley presents Lucy’s romanticized remembrance of her time in the stars and her increasingly destabilized life on Earth. It might not get as weird as Legion could at its apex—somehow I don’t see Portman and Hamm breaking out into a mental dance-off at any point in this film—but it’s definitely taking some of that trippy exploration and applying it to a story that’s a bit more rooted in our own world than that of comic book heroes and villains.


Lucy in the Sky is set for a currently undisclosed release sometime this year.
