The Starry Messenger synopsis

Are we all just lonely specks of dust in an incomprehensibly vast and ever-expanding multiverse? Mark Williams (Broderick) feels no only lost on Planet Earth, but in the universe in general. Working as an astronomer at Manhattan's famous Planetarium, he feels closer to the infinite sky full of stars than he does to his wife Anne or his job itself. As a logical thinker, Mark may not believe in such pseudosciences as divination and fate, but it seems the universe certainly has his destiny all planned out. After bumping into a single mother named Angela, it appears the solar system has aligned just for them. But as a catastrophic event tears them up and rips their lives apart, Mark suddenly must rethink his life and reconsider his beliefs in the mysterious power of the universe. See what's in store for Mark in this bittersweet comic drama that will leave you thinking long and hard about what you think you may know about the cosmos and life. 

The Starry Messenger is written by Academy Award winner Kenneth Lonergan (Manchester-By-The-Sea) and it is produced by Rupert Gavin, Howard Panter/Eilene Davidson, Gavin Kalin, Act Productions and Simon Friend Entertainment.
