Podcast: Ad Astra + Downton Abbey | feat. James Gray
In Ad Astra, astronaut Roy McBride (Brad Pitt) travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father and unravel a mystery that threatens the survival of our planet. His journey will uncover secrets that challenge the nature of human existence and our place in the cosmos.
It's 1927, the jazz age is in full swing, and Downton Abbey is anticipating a visit from none other than the King and Queen. Inhabitants, relatives and servants swing into action but can the silver be polished in time? This is a lavish and cinematic version of Julian Fellowes’s country house drama but can it bring a satisfying conclusion to the much loved saga?
Discussing the film this week are Sam Howlett, Jake Cunningham and Steph Watts
