Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 11/27/2002
"...Visually handsome in an austere way..."
USA Today - 11/27/2002
"...Clooney does a convincing job....Davies is also strong....Soderbergh does a fine job of creating a moody atmosphere of pervasive anxiety..."
Rolling Stone - 12/12/2002
"...SOLARIS is a mind-bender in the best sense of the word: The spell it casts follows you all the way home..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/06/2002
"...Sleekly austere....McElhone is certainly someone to pine for -- there are depths to her apple-cheeked sculptural beauty..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/27/2002
"...What it does most of all is reinforce Steven Soderbergh's position as Hollywood's most gifted chameleon, a filmmaker able to operate with elan in all manner of genres..."
Box Office - 01/01/2003

Variety - 11/25/2002
"...Technically superb and features a strong serious performance by George Clooney..."

Product Description:

Steven Soderbergh (OCEAN'S ELEVEN, TRAFFIC) delivers yet another inspired remake with this pensive sci-fi drama based on the book by Stanislaw Lem. Taking his cue from Russian master Andrei Tarkovsky's 1972 epic of the same name, Soderbergh boldly chooses atmosphere over action, crafting a profoundly meditative work that will challenge audiences for many years to come. George Clooney plays Chris Kelvin, a therapist who is sent to a space station near the planet of Solaris in order to investigate a series of mysterious happenings. When he arrives, he finds only two surviving crew members, the hyper-strange Snow (Jeremy Davies) and ultra-paranoid Gordon (Viola Davis). Unable to make sense of their fear and confusion, Chris soon discovers the reason for their anxiety. In a seemingly implausible turn of events caused by Solaris's bizarre energy levels, Chris's deceased wife Rhea (Natascha McElhone) reappears. Fully aware that Rhea is only a figment of his memory, Chris is nonetheless unable to dismiss her due to the tragic events surrounding her death. He must somehow find a way to bid farewell to Rhea once and for all without collapsing under the weight of his own guilty conscience. Soderbergh's dream of a motion picture successfully balances philosophy with romance, telling a familiar tale of love and loss in a strikingly original way.
