Guy is an experienced British fighter pilot who is in command of Britain's first manned mission to space. He has trained for this for three years at the height of the Cold War and now he is alone in space with a malfunctioning capsule. He has limited contact with the UK, some unusual communication with the US and some unorthodox communication with Tyuratam deep in Soviet Russia. Who will help him? Will he make the right choice?Written by
Taylor's spacesuit was designed by the filmmakers making reference to early spacesuits. It is cobalt blue in color and was made by Hilliary Wili who also made Sam Rockwell's spacesuit in 'Moon' See more »
Taylor is contacted by NASA when his craft overflies the United States. While NASA was established by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958 ( the year before the film's setting) the agency didn't take over the US spaceflight and launch role until early October of 1958.
It's unlikely that Taylor would have known what NASA was and he would have likely had to have its role explained to him. He would have likely expected contact from National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, NASA's predecessor. See more »

This film is an excellent example of a great idea very poorly executed. The story is actually good but the actual story-telling is poor. First off the Brit in the capsule, Guy Taylor, was far from stoic or calm. The "former fighter pilot" was too emotional and lacked all the qualities you'd expect in someone picked to be "the first man in space". I don't know if this was due to bad directing, bad acting or both, but as Arnie would say, he was a "girlie-man". Secondly, the first half of the film is painfully slow and I found myself drifting away and losing interest. Despite all this I was pleasantly surprised by how it ended, but it was too late by then. If you want to see a fine example of a movie with just one actor well executed have a look at Tom Hardy in "Locke". In fact I think that Hardy would have made a much better Guy Taylor.
