The Midnight Sky is a science fiction film directed by George Clooney, based on the 2016 novel Good Morning, Midnight by Lily Brooks-Dalton. It’s about a scientist who must venture through the Arctic Circle to warn off a returning spaceship following a global catastrophe. The Midnight Sky was interesting and riveting at times. It was a pleasure to journey through this film with the likes of Mr. Clooney.

Scientist Augustine Lofthouse (George Clooney) has devoted his life work to finding habitable planets where humanity can grow. He meets Jean Sullivan (Sophie Rundle) after giving a presentation at a gala and the two form a romantic relationship. After a pregnancy scare, Jean leaves him because of his obsession with work and inability to bond with other human beings. Several years later, Lofthouse encounters her again and she tells him that they have a daughter, whom he chooses not to meet.
