On the get go, the film reminded me of Robinson Crusoe, a guy stuck on a deserted island... with the slight difference of our guy being stuck on a high-tech, state-of-the-art space ship, with all the amenities he could possibly ask for!
In a sense, Jim (Chris Pratt) didn't need to fight to survive. But if Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs taught us anything, once we've secured food and safety, then comes Love/Belonging... and boy was our boy just dying inside.
On a particularly miserable day, all by his lonesome self, Jim bumped into the pod of the beautiful sleeping Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence).
Day by day, he would learn more about Aurora from her files, and he found that he was falling more and more for her...
So here comes the moral dilemma. If you were Jim, would you wake her up? Effectively also taking away her very future just so you won't be alone?!
(Hey, not judging here. If it was the other way around, I'd wake Chris Pratt in a heartbeat!)
