Does The Space Between Us deliver interplanetary thrills?
A few, but this one’s really all about the romance.
"I'm out of here the second I turn 18." "I just wish I could go with you."
In this sci-fi drama, a teen boy born and raised on Mars,
comes to Earth to meet a girl and track down his long-lost dad.
"This is my father. You're gonna help me find him."
While the love story here is romantic, things never get too racy.
Think kissing and one scene with a little bare skin.
"You're the most beautiful girl I've ever seen."
As for danger, there are a couple of chases and crashes, an explosion,
and a potentially upsetting hospital scene.
"His heart can't handle our gravity!"
Bottom line: This sweet story celebrates the power of relationships.
"This is my life!"
