Written and directed by Joss Whedon, this cult sci-fi adventure flick follows the renegade crew of spaceship Serenity, as they take aboard a telepathic fugitive named River Tam. As a result of their hospitality, the fleet soon finds itself in the crosshairs of a ruthless regime who will stop at nothing to get River back. Meanwhile, the real threat might already be onboard. Set in the 26th century, the movie expands upon Whedon’s acclaimed but short-lived TV series, “Firefly.”
