Solaris was more psychological thriller than sci-fi. And it is quite a brain squisher.
The film's action takes place some time after the death of Chris (Clooney)'s wife. He's a psychiatrist who's sent into space to help out when some strange things start happening at the space station above a planet called Solaris.
Dead people start appearing. It's quite unnerving.
The Role: Poor Chris Kelvin. He's still grieving and he has to face reincarnations of his wife, again and again. Though that's nice for us, because she is very pretty.
The Charm: He's more pensive than charming, but we'll let him off, because he's having a tough time.
