Natalie Portman’s the astronaut who experiences something akin to what the late, great Douglas Adams called “The Total Perspective Vortex.”
She’s been to space, seen how insignificant she and her corner of the world is within it, and is desperate to get back out there.
Ellen Burstyn, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, a very cool cast and that damned Beatles tune quoted on the soundtrack. “Lucy in the Sky” has it all, and maybe — after Toronto — a hint of Oscar buzz.
But we shall see.
Oct. 4 release.
