First, let me say that I enjoyed Gravity. It was suspenseful, well acted, and visually stunning. What I did have a problem with was when George Clooney’s character just so happened to knock on the window, come inside the spacecraft, and save the day. Can you even fathom the impossibly astronomical odds against him accidentally coming into contact with Bullock again, given the immensity of deep space? Also, there are hints of sexism in this - why couldn’t Bullock’s character be shown to be able to solve her own problems? Why does she need to have a man save her?
