Plenty of grist for Nick Lowe's mill here. Ender's Game as animation, Pacific Rim but no sign of Kim Stanley R, Cloud Atlas plus another 17.

The latest – and probably not the last – example of multiple universes in popular culture comeswith a new German film released earlier this month entitled Schilf,which means “Reeds” in English.

The film’s based on the bestselling book of the same name by German author Juli Zeh, the English translation of which, rather confusingly, was entitled Dark Matter in the UK and In Free Fall in the US.

Reviewing the book for Physics World in 2010, US science writer Jennifer Ouellette called it “a compelling intellectual thriller”, which she commended for its “meticulous plotting…and lyrical turns of phrase”. You can read her review (via the link).

Anyway, the film version, like the book, features – unusually in the movie world – not one, but two bona fide physicists, in the form of a professor at the University of Jena called Sebastian Wittich (played by Mark Waschke) and an old pal from his student days called Oskar Hoyer (Stipe Erceg), who’s now based at CERN.
