Moon is a British science fiction drama film co-written and directed by Duncan Jones. The film follows Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell), an astronaut nearing the end of a three-year solitary stint mining helium-3 on the far side of the Moon. Isolation takes an alarming toll on his mind, mere weeks before he is to return home. This sets into motion a series of events which reveals the terrible truth behind his mission.
