Would you jump in the void of space with a guy you just met?

Well... I would say that depends on various life coordinates, however when the guy in question is Chris Pratt and when he looks in your eyes and asks softly: "Do you trust me?"

I would certainly jump with him.

I think this is the perfect Valentine movie mainly for two reasons.

One: it tests the grounds for every relationship posing the dilemma "Is it just physical attraction or is there a connection to a higher spiritual level and therefore absolute trust in each other?"

Two: it tests the grounds on another important dilemma every couple sooner or later faces: "Would I live only with this person for the rest of my life?"

Imagine colonising a new world and a trip of more than 150 years to get there. You are among the 5000 passengers hibernated and sent to the new colony of Homestead II. All good for the first 30 or so years, but then an unexpected meteorite storm damages the spaceship. Accidentally, also some of the pods containing the passengers in suspended animation malfunction and the passengers are awakened 90 years too early.

Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) will need to take important decisions not only for themselves but also for the other 5000 passengers in imminent danger. The enormous spaceship, although equipped with every "state of the art" facility you can think of, it is not capable of repairing itself anymore. Jim and Aurora will need to face their doubts, fears and dig deep to find the courage to take the right decision.

While watching this movie, you and your partner will project your personalities straight into that spaceship.

She will be swimming in the pool facing the universe and he will be fixing some minor androids malfunction.

I would highly recommend this movie if you want a good dose of old- fashion chivalry and romanticism instilled back in your own relationship.
