Movie Review: The Space Between Us (PG)
Britt Robertson should tell her agent to stop getting her roles that require her to play a high school student. There's 2015's Tomorrowland, this current young-adult romance and the upcoming A Dog's Purpose.
Robertson is already looking her age - 26. There is no way she and 19-year-old Asa Butterfield could look convincing as a pair of young lovers.
The story follows Butterfield's Gardner, a teenager born and raised on Mars. Bored with being cooped up in a space station, he yearns to visit Earth and meet his one and only Earth friend, Tulsa (Robertson).
Theirs is a love not meant to be, as Gardner's body can't adapt to Earth's atmospheric pressure. Their chemistry is also non-existent, making their on-screen romance even harder to swallow.
