The best part about Interstellar is the fact that Christopher Nolan doesn’t try to add a political or religious angle to his film.
Interstellar borrows style and substance from some of the finest in the genre and also adds new twists while paying attention to real science.

Coming to the performances, well Jessica Chastain playing the grown up daughter of Matthew McConaughey brings real angst and an edge to the movie; even Mackenzie Foy playing her part as a child keeps you glued. However the film belongs to Matthew McConaughey who is perfect in his part.
Interstellar presents a substantial amount of scientific information, physics, mathematics and space-related content in the most entertaining manner and a lot of credit for this should go to it’s writing team of Jonathan Nolan and Christopher Nolan. Both really need to be applauded for this.
