Jack Plotnick’s feature film directorial debut, Space Station 76, is a 1970’s version of future life in space. This comedic drama is anchored by star names like Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, Marisa Coughlan, Jerry O’Connell and Kali Rocha, who all add a deep honesty to their parodied performances. The direction allows the characters to develop within the colorful and farcical situations. The period and sci-fi genre specifics lend a hand to the on-screen relationships instead of overshadowing them. The timeless and dark themes of marital stresses, depression, adultery and prejudices towards the female captain are handled with a wink and a nudge. Plotnick and his team of writers have the audacity to come right out and say what everyone else was thinking that you won’t be able to help but laugh.
