Starring: Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim, Shamier Anderson, Toni Collette


Netflix’s sci-fi thriller co-written and directed by Joe Penna. Stowaway (2021) follows a three-man crew as they embark on a space mission to Mars. However, things don’t go as smoothly as they prepared for when they discover a stranger, Michael (Shamier Anderson), has accidentally boarded their ship causing severe damage to the spaceship’s life support systems. Facing dwindling resources and a potentially grim outcome, the ship’s medical researcher, Zoe Levenson (Anna Kendrick), emerges as the only dissenting voice against the clinical logic of both her commander, Marina Barnett (Toni Collette), and the ship’s biologist, Kim (Daniel Dae Kim).

We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.




Zoe Levenson: Sit down!
Michael: Did we take off?
Zoe Levenson: Sit down, or you’re going to pass out.
Zoe Levenson: Commander! Commander!
Michael: Did we take off?


Zoe Levenson: Michael, I’m Zoe. I’m a doctor. I want you to focus on slowing down your breathing. In through your nose, out through your mouth.


Marina Barnett: Hi, Michael. I’m Marina Barnett, the commander of the ship. Do you remember what happened on the pad?
Michael: I’m a launch support engineer, ma’am. How long was I out?
Marina Barnett: We took off about twelve hours ago.
Michael: Twelve hours.


Michael: I got to get back to my sister! Please, my sister, she’s alone. Please I got to get back
Marina Barnett: We’re not going back.
Michael: What do you mean, “We’re not going back?” This is a two year mission.


Kim: Two years is a long time to be away, but this is the opportunity of a lifetime.
Michael: I can learn fast.


Kim: We are taking the first steps to being able to call Mars a second home.


Zoe Levenson: [to Michael] We’re sorry that you missed the filet mignon. But this is the next best thing. We think it’s spaghetti.
Kim: I should warn you now that Zoe thinks she’s the in-flight entertainment.


Marina Barnett: There’s no easy way to say this. Life support is damaged permanently. We only have enough oxygen onboard for three people.
Kim: Everyone onboard will suffocate before we ever make it to Mars.


Zoe Levenson: How much time do we have before it’s too late?
Marina Barnett: Twenty days.
Zoe Levenson: I think we should put ourselves at risk.


Michael: Hey, Ava. I got to face the fact that I’m not going to be there with you.


Kim: This research is years of our lives. Are we sure we want to throw it all away?


Kim: There’s no way for all of us to survive.
Marina Barnett: It’s imperative that we try.


Marina Barnett: For their sanity, they need to try this.


Michael: This is hopeless.
Zoe Levenson: It isn’t.
