“Existential but also intimate, ‘Ad Astra’ is a stunning, sensitive exploration of the space left by an absent parent — and the infinite void of actual space.” – John Nugent, Empire

“The film’s geography takes us on a cross-solar system journey but the real trajectory is deep into the human experience – finding meaning in life and coming to grips with being left behind.” – James Berardinelli, ReelViews
