Clara

"This as earnest and reverent as films get, and Sherman's idealism is infectious."

About

Isaac Bruno is an astronomer consumed with searching the cosmos for evidence of life. When his obsession jeopardizes his career, he ignores a friend's advice to get his life back on track and instead delves deeper into his research - in part to escape from a tragedy in his past. After Isaac meets an artist named Clara, the two begin an unlikely collaboration sifting through mounds of newly released stellar data in the hopes of making a monumental discovery.
