Proxima is easily one of the best international dramas of the years, that also features the finest performance of Eva Green this far putting her up against an all in Matt Dillion even though if you know Matt’s work throughout his career, it’s easy to see why he’s cast as this part as it’s second nature to him.
The stories of astronauts seem to be hot over the past few years, starting with Hidden Figures, First Man, and the very underrated and awesome Apple TV+ tv-series For All Mankind. If you are the audience of Hidden Figures and First Man then Proxima is going to be your type of film.
Overall Proxima still does follow a very formulaic plot development, although, it does capture great performances including an Oscar-Worthy Eva Green that should get her some well-deserved attention for her acting. She has a strong career so far but this will put her in much more juicer and serious roles in the future.
Overall grade: 3/5 stars
