Disappointingly, with The Midnight Sky, an adaptation of the novel “Good Morning, Midnight” by Lily Brooks-Dalton, Clooney belies his reputation within the genre. It’s a film that’s well shot, with the director/star clearly taking some inspiration from Cuaron for one space-set action sequence, but mostly it’s a tired drama built on familiar story beats that, in retrospect, is rendered occasionally nonsensical in moments thanks to its bad twist ending.
