Interstellar is a science fiction prediction of the Future on Earth which was released in 2014 and is directed by Christopher Nolan.
Interstellar is the brain child of Christopher and Jonathon Nolan, two British born brother team that has been responsible for other films such as `The Dark Knight`, `The Dark Knight Rises`, `The Prestige` and `Memento`.
The film is set in the near future when the Earth is dying, food supplies are dwindling, typical End of the World scenario. Instead of taking it on the chin and accepting the inevitable, those brainy boffins at national aeronautics and space administration (n.a.s.a.) have built a record that will take people into space to search for a new world on which we can colonize. Chosen as part of the mission are Cooper and Amelia.
All the members of the shuttle have to make sacrifices and one of these is to leave family behind. For Cooper, he has to leave his daughter Murphy behind. They visit possible inhabitable Extrasolar planets (Exoplanets) for which humanity to move to. Fortunately for the astronauts, a wormhole has been spotted that will take years off their journey.
As they are travelling at super sonic speeds, their bodies don`t age as much as they do on the Earth. When they ultimately return to Earth, Cooper finds his daughter is nearly the same age as he was as he left. The people on Earth catching up with those astronauts are based on the `Theory of Relativity` by German-American scientist Albert Einstein.
