The movie Gravity is about a medical engineer by the name of Dr.Ryan Stone who is on her fist shuttle mission STS-157 with the veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky on his last flight before retiring. Mission control suddenly instructs Dr.Ryan Stone and Matt to abort their spacewalk because a Russian missile has struck on a satellite and has caused a chain reaction heading right at them. The debris come at them in high speed and irreparably damages the shuttle and space station killing the crew with only Kowalsky and Stone surviving. They are both left completely alone with only each other to rely on. Through the process of finding their way back to earth by reaching another space station, they find themselves short of oxygen and fuel. As they float through space, Kowalski learns more about Dr.Stone and her life back at home and learns about her daughters death in a school yard incident. With each character often finding themselves on their own without the other, it often leads them to a feeling of isolation and questioning what is best for the other at the expense of oneself.

Best part of story, including ending:
What I didn't enjoy about the movie Gravity is it was too simplistic and melodramatic. It came off as just a simple survival story in space but was quite boring and didn't keep my interest all the way through.
Best scene in story:
One of my favorite scenes is when Matt and Ryan really begin to talk to each other while traveling through the International Space Station.
Opinion about the main character:
What I enjoyed about the character Dr.Ryan Stone is how even though she's alone out there in space you can see here character development in the film, not only is she trying to find her way back home she is also finding the will to do so.
