'Prospect'

This year's SXSW seems to be a magnet for potentially mindbending, mindblowing lo-fi sci-fi – we've definitely got our eyes on you, aliens-give-a-teen-extraordinary-powers YA project First Light and the Bluebeard-fable-meets-techno-thriller Elisabeth Harvest. But the one entry in this fertile subgenre that we're most curious about is Zeek Earl and Chris Caldwell's story of an interstellar prospector (Transparent's Jay Duplass), his teenage kid (Sophie Thatcher), a moonscape that's apparently dripping with resources and some fellow miners out to get rich or commit murder while tryin'. Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal and The Wire's Andre Royo costar. We're a sucker for movies about father-daughter relationships and ones involving space madness, so put the two together and, like, can we get in line for this now?
