Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia) and Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe) star in Upside Down, an interplanetary dystopian romance that puts an eye-popping, original twist on the classic tale of forbidden love. Lovers Adam (Sturgess) and Eden (Dunst) are separated not just by social class and a political system bent on keeping them apart, but also by a freak planetary condition: they live on twinned worlds with gravities that pull in opposite directions—he on the poverty-stricken planet below, she on the wealthy, exploitative world above. The planets are so close that their highest mountain peaks almost touch. That's where Adam and Eden first meet as children. And later, as teens, where he pulls her down to his world by a rope to cavort in dual-gravity bliss. But when interplanetary border-patrol agents attack them, Eden falls back to her world. Ten years later, Adam begins a quest fraught with dangers and challenges—from having to woo Eden all over again, to fleeing authorities through a topsy-turvy realm where up is sometimes down and down is sometimes up. Upside Down is a visually stunning romantic adventure that asks the question: what if love was stronger than gravity? Written and directed by Juan Solanas. Official Web Site
