Familial love. Is there anything more important than that? How about the survival of the human race? What would you do to save the world? In his latest original scifi film, Christopher Nolan takes the notion of the protagonist fighting to see his children again (last seen in Inception) to almost ridiculous levels.
Structurally, the story is rather simple. Cooper (McConaughey) is given the opportunity (in rather fortuitous manner) to save the human race from extinction but to do that, he has to risk never seeing his children ever again. Thus, throughout his mission, his main priority is returning to the Earth and his children.
