Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalski, played by George Clooney. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalski completely alone - tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
Marlon Brando ("The Godfather") made his first indelible mark on audiences in this powerful adaptation of Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Vivien Leigh ("Gone With the Wind") is the neurotic belle Blanche du Bois who struggles to hold on to her fading Southern gentility against the brutish badgering of her brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Leigh, Kim Hunter ("Lilith"), Karl Malden ("The Streets of San Francisco") and the rich black-and-white cinematography were all awarded Oscars for this cinematic classic. Newly restored to include extra footage censored in 1951 due to sexual content. Recently selected by the prestigious American Film Institute as one of the 50 greatest American films of all time.

Network head Frank Hackett (Duvall) advocates kicking.
