In my mind, the film is about transcending gravity; the quest to live life a few feet off the ground. The Kaballah teaches that growth and impact emerge from living outside our comfort zone. The ground offers security but the most memorable moments in life and fulfillment arise when we strive to live a little higher and brighter.
It's truly refreshing that Sandra Bullock's character, Dr. Ryan Carter, is depicted in Gravity as an intelligent professional.

We were extremely excited when we heard director Alfonso Cuarón was going to make a thriller with Sandra Bullock playing the lead role as an intrepid engineer and problem solver.
In space, no one can hear you scream -- but with a movie as tense and masterful as Gravity, you'll just be hoping no one in the theater will hear or smell you poop your pants.
A buoyant crowd settled into lunch at The Explorers' Club to celebrate Gravity. Producer David Heyman exulted about the beauty of the film, about two ...
It's been almost four weeks since I first saw Alfonso Cuarón's quite brilliant, "I'm stuck in space and I'd like to go back to Earth now," movie, Gravity. I only point this out because that means I've had an inordinate amount of time to think about Gravity.
