Proxima stars Eva Green as Sarah, a French astronaut and mum, delicately balancing extreme work commitments and raising her eight-year-old daughter, who she adores.
Sarah is the only woman in the gruelling space program and the physical and mental demands are significant. When Sarah is chosen to be part of the crew of a year-long space mission called ‘Proxima’, it creates chaos in the family dynamic
Shot on location in actual training facilities in Europe, Russia and Kazakhstan, Proxima is defined by a brillant performance from Eva Green. The final credit sequence showcases the achievements of several female astronauts and mums – a wonderful tribute to remarkable women.
