#22 The Mission

Pleasance Courtyard, Above

Minimalist drama about a mission to a faraway moon, Europa. Solo traveller, separation from boyfriend, PR angle, jealous trainer. Psychological dimension - alone in the endless space. A little puppetry, a little physical. Great use of lights, action. Well paced, OK script, if predictable. Clever moments, barely a lift-off. Believable, if thin stereotype characters.
