About the Movie

Sixteen-year-old Gardner Elliot (Asa Butterfield) has lived his whole life with a team of scientists on Mars. He's always longed to see Earth to find the father he's never known and to meet a beautiful street-smart girl named Tulsa he's become friends with online. But when his chance finally comes, doctors discover his heart can't withstand the Earth's atmosphere. Eager to find his father, Gardner and Tulsa escape on a cross-country race against time to unravel the mysteries of how he came to be and where he belongs in the universe. Gary Oldman and Carla Gugino also star in this heartfelt and inspiring romantic adventure about how far one person can go for love.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The Space Between Us attempts to take young love to literally new heights before crash-landing into an earthbound hash of schmaltzy cliches and romantic absurdities. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 3, 2017

Rotten: By the time you get to the money shot of two lovers kissing in zero gravity, you'll either be deep in this movie's pocket or have fallen into a diabetic coma. – David Fear, Rolling Stone, Feb 4, 2017

Rotten: The whole sci-fi narrative collapses into a mess of illogical story beats and groan-inducing quasi-tragic bits right out of Love Story. – Brian Truitt, USA Today, Feb 2, 2017

Rotten: You may very well laugh and cry during "The Space Between Us," though probably at the wrong times and for entirely unintended reasons. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Feb 3, 2017

Amazing movie

This is one of my favorite movies! I saw it the day it came out! It was funny and romantic, almost a science fiction romcom. I would definitely recommend this movie!!!

Beautiful and Unique!

I don't usually write reviews, but this movie was amazing. It has its cheesy and teen moments but it shows a unique love that gets to everyone. Plus it also has very funny moments that gets the crowd laughing! Love this movie and would recommend to any hopeless romantic!
