Sarah (Eva Green), an astronaut and mother, grapples with her commitment to her daughter as she undergoes gruelling physical training for a one-year stint in space in this epic and emotionally charged new drama.

Accomplished scientist and astronaut Sarah has achieved her career ambition of being chosen for a year long mission to the International Space Station. As she begins the intense physical and mental training, she wrestles with the realities of what achieving her dream will mean to her as a parent and to her seven year-old daughter Stella. As mission launch approaches and facing further challenges with her international team lead by an established NASA astronaut (Matt Dillon), Sarah’s commitments to her job and duties as a mother are put to the ultimate test.

Writer-director Alice Winocour’s stunning direction and immaculately researched script combined with a career defining performance from Eva Green, make Proxima a film that is a tender and moving portrait of a mother-daughter relationship, set against the backdrop of an awe inspiring journey of a lifetime.
