About Glasgow Film Festival Opening Gala: Proxima

The 16th annual festival will open 26 February with UK premiere of Alice Winocour’s Proxima starring Eva Green

The latest drama from award-winning Alice Winocour, director of Augustine and Disorder. Eva Green (Casino Royale, Penny Dreadful) gives one of her most powerful performances in a heartfelt portrait of a woman torn between professional ambition and the demands of motherhood. Astronaut Sarah Loreau (Green) is undertaking the gruelling mental and physical training required for a one-year mission aboard the International Space Station. She is the only mother in a diverse international crew. Her colleagues, including American NASA veteran Mike (Matt Dillon), are focused on the job and seemingly untroubled by their family responsibilities. Separated from her husband, Sarah tends to the needs of her sensitive seven-year-old daughter, Stella (Zelie Boulant-Lemesle), who is struggling with the long separation that lies ahead. The pressures intensify as Sarah finds herself facing some impossible choices. Meticulously observed, Proxima offers a tender portrait of a mother-daughter relationship against a backdrop of unimaginable scope.

Tickets for Opening and Closing Galas go on sale at 12 noon on Monday 13 January from glasgowfilm.org/festival and GFT Box Office (0141 332 6535).
