The Story Geeks with Jay Sherer

Interstellar - Ghosts, Faith, and Your Brain Before Death

March 6, 2017

Daryl Smith and Elvis Illescas review Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and then dig deeper to ask some important questions about the story.

First up, their review--Quality, Story Depth, and Likelihood to Refer it to others. And here are some of the deeper questions:

  • Who is your favorite character in Interstellar? Why?
  • Which characters have the most faith (whatever it may be in)? Is their faith rewarded?
  • Which characters reject faith? How does it work out for them?
  • Much of the film is about the perseverance of humanity to survive. Is this possible outside of faith?
  • Is there truth in science? Can science be a type of savior?
  • Do you think God exists in the world of Interstellar? Why or why not?
