The Martian is a sci-fi space thriller based on Andy Weir’s best-selling novel, a popular book among both adult and teen readers. Matt Damon stars as Mark Watney, a NASA astronaut accidentally left behind on Mars when his crew thinks he died during an emergency evacuation.
I can’t wait to see this movie!!! I’m so excited to be co-hosting tonight’s twitter party because this is a movie that the entire family can get behind! Everyone will be able to enjoy this story. It’s a perfect film for ages 12+ who are interested in space travel, science, technology, and, of course, science-fiction!
I mean – parents, let be honest. It’s always so great to have a film that all ages can embrace. I am a MOVIE FANATIC and when I find something that the kids and I can both fall in love with – I call that a BIG WIN!
Common Sense Media has it recommended for 12+ and pretty high marks for “good role models” and “positive messages”. Want more information? Click here.

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return. Based on a best-selling novel, and helmed by master director Ridley Scott, THE MARTIAN features a star studded cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Pena, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover.
