Interstellar (film)
2014 British-American science fiction film directed by Christopher Nolan
Interstellar is a 2014 science fiction film about a team of astronauts who travel through a cosmicwormhole in search of a habitable planet as the Earth is ravaged by worldwide crop blights, dust storms and the atmosphere loses oxygen.
These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements.
Directed by Christopher Nolan. Written by Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan.
Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here. taglines
Our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.
Cooper
We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.
Professor Brand
Do not go gentle into that good night;
Old age should burn and rave at close of day.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Quoting famous lines of the poem "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Dylan Thomas
Murphy Cooper
Today is my birthday. And it's a special one … now I'm the same age that you were when you left ... and it'd be really great if you came back soon.
Eureka!
Amelia Brand
Love is the one thing that transcendstime and space.

Dialogue
You don't believe we went to the Moon?
We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us.
We must reach far beyond our own lifespans. We must think not as individuals but as a species. We must confront the reality of interstellar travel.
Time is relative, it can stretch and squeeze, but it can't run backwards. The only thing that can move across dimensions like time is gravity.
Look, Cooper, they're creatures of at least five dimensions, to them the past might be a canyon they can climb into and the future a mountain they can climb up... but to us it's not, okay?
Young Murph: Dad, why did you and mom name me after something that's bad?
Cooper: Well, we didn't.
Young Murph: Murphy's law?
Cooper: Murphy's law doesn't mean that something bad will happen. It means that whatever can happen will happen.
Cooper: You're ruling out college for my son now? He's 15.
Principal: Tom's score simply isn't high enough.
Cooper: What's your waist line? What 32, 33 inseam?
Principal: I'm not sure I see what you're getting at.
Cooper: You're telling me it takes two numbers to measure your own ass but only one to measure my son's future?
Cooper: You don't believe we went to the Moon?
Ms. Hanley: I believe it was a brilliant piece of propaganda, that the Soviets bankrupted themselves pouring resources into rockets and other useless machines...
Cooper: Useless machines?
Ms. Hanley: ..and if we don't want to repeat of the excess and wastefulness of the 20th Century then we need to teach our kids about this planet, not tales of leaving it.
Cooper: You know, one of those useless machines they used to make was called an MRI, and if we had one of those left the doctors would have been able to find the cyst in my wife's brain, before she died instead of afterwards, and then she would've been the one sitting here, listening to this instead of me. Which would've been a good thing because she was always the ... calmer one.
Dr. Brand: We must confront the reality that nothing in our solar system can help us.
Cooper: Now you need to tell me what your plan is to save the world.
Dr. Brand: We're not meant to save the world. We're meant to leave it, and this is the mission you were trained for.
Cooper: I've got kids, Professor.
Dr. Brand: Then get out there and save them. We must reach far beyond our own lifespans. We must think not as individuals but as a species. We must confront the reality of interstellar travel.
Cooper: It is hard leaving everything... my kids, your father...
Brand: We're gonna be spending a lot of time together.
Cooper: We should learn to talk.
Brand: And when not to? … Just being honest.
Cooper: I don't think you need to be that honest.
Doyle: The lost communications came through.
Brand: How?
Doyle: The relay on this side cached them. Years of basic data, no real surprises. Miller's site has kept pinging thumbs up, as has Mann... but Edmunds went down three years ago.
Brand: Transmitter failure?
Doyle: Maybe. He was sending thumbs up right till it went dark.
Romilly: Miller still looks good? [Doyle nods, and Romilly begins drawing on a whiteboard] She's coming up fast ... with one complication: the planet is much closer to Gargantua than we thought.
Cooper: Gargantua?
Doyle: A very large black hole. Miller's and Dr. Mann's planets orbit it.
Brand: And Miller's is right on the horizon?
Romilly: A basketball on the hoop. Landing there takes us dangerously close. A black hole that big has a huge gravitational pull.
Cooper: Look, I can swing around that neutron star and decelerate—
Brand: It's not that, it's time. That gravity will slow our clock compared to Earth. Drastically.
Cooper: How bad?
Romilly: Every hour we spend down there will be maybe... seven years back on Earth.
Cooper: Jesus...
Romilly: That's relativity, folks.
Cooper: Ready?
CASE: Yup.
Cooper: Don't say much, do you?
CASE: TARS talks plenty for both of us.
Cooper: We wanna get down fast, don't we?
Brand: Actually we want to get there in one piece.
Cooper: Hang on.
Brand: I told you to leave me.
Cooper: And I told you to get your ass back here! Difference is, only one of us was thinking about the mission—
Brand: Cooper, you were thinking about getting home — I was trying to do the right thing!
Cooper: Tell that to Doyle. [pause] How long to drain, CASE?
CASE: Forty-five to an hour.
Cooper: The stuff of life, huh? What's this gonna cost us, Brand?
Brand: A lot. Decades.
Cooper: What happened to Miller?
Brand: Judging by the wreckage, she was broken up by a wave shortly after impact.
Cooper: How could the wreckage still be together after all these years?
Brand: Because of the time slippage. on this planet's time, she landed here just hours ago. She might have died only minutes ago.
CASE: The data Doyle collected was just the initial status, echoing endlessly.
Cooper: We're not prepared for this, Brand. You're a bunch of eggheads without the survival skills of a boy-scout troop.
Brand: We got this far on our brains, farther than any humans in history...
Cooper: No, not far enough. And we're stuck here till there won't be anyone left on Earth to save—
Brand: I'm counting every second, same as you, Cooper.
Cooper: Don't you have some clever way we jump into a black hole and get back the years? [Brand shakes her head] Don't you shake your head at me!
Brand: Time is relative, it can stretch and squeeze, but it can't run backwards. The only thing that can move across dimensions like time is gravity.
Cooper: The beings that led us here ... they communicate through gravity ... Could they be talking to us from the future?
Brand: Maybe.
Cooper: Well, if they can—
Brand: Look, Cooper, they're creatures of at least five dimensions, to them the past might be a canyon they can climb into and the future a mountain they can climb up... but to us it's not, okay? I'm sorry, Cooper. I screwed up. But you know about relativity.
Cooper: My daughter was ten. I couldn't explain Einstein's theories before I left.
Brand: Could you tell her you were going to save the world?
Cooper: No. I wasn't much of a parent, but I understood the most important thing — let your kids feel safe. Which rules out telling ten-year-old that the world's ending.
Cooper:[As he tries to reconfigure TARS personality settings] Humour 75%.
TARS: Confirmed. Self destruct sequence in T minus 10… 9…
Cooper: Let's make that 60%.
TARS: 60%, confirmed. Knock, knock.
Cooper: You want fifty-five?
Cooper, what are you doing?! Docking.
TARS: [As Cooper suddenly accelerates towards an out-of-control Endurance] Cooper, there's no point in using our fuel to chase-
Cooper: Analyze the Endurance's spin.
Brand: Cooper, what are you doing?!
Cooper: Docking.
CASE: This is not possible.
Cooper: No. It's necessary.
Cooper: What's your trust setting, TARS?
TARS: Lower than yours, apparently.
Murph: [as Cooper holds his now elderly daughter's hands] Nobody believed me, but I knew you'd come back.
Cooper: How?
Murph: ...Because my dad promised me.

Quotes about Interstellar
I grew up in an era that was the golden age of blockbusters, with films like Close Encounters and the way that addressed the idea of this moment when humans would meet aliens from a family perspective and a very relatable human perspective. I liked the idea of trying to give today’s audiences some sense of that form of storyline. ~ Christopher Nolan
