If you thought Gravity Couldn’t Get Any Better, It Just Did
Fans and critics alike fawned over Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, but now screenwriter Jonás Cuarón is making a good thing even better with a 7-minute short titled AningaaqIt tells the story of the Inuit fisherman who receives Ryan Stone’s distress call from space, and carries on a conversation with her about dogs, babies, life and death despite the two speaking two different languages.

PS: I love Aaron Paul.

That was until her daughter used Mica’s words against her – “If you can’t share, we’ll have to take it away.” With that, Mica relinquished control and allowed her daughter to help complete her works. The results are pretty amazing.
