Chris Kelvin (Clooney) is a psychologist on Earth, and receives a bizzare message from an old friend that the Solaris exploration mission has gone wrong, but the friend can't explain how. Kelvin is sent to meet the ship and attempt to return the ship and crew to Earth.
Kelvin arrives at the planet Solaris to find some of the crew dead, others missing, and the remaining survivors are being extremely vague about what's been happening.
He finds that the ship has "visitors" onboard... beings that look, sound, and act like people the crew used to know, including his own dead wife. Are the beings who they say they are, or is the crew under attack by a malevolent alien force?


Romantic ending undermined

The fake Rheya tries to kill herself by drinking liquid oxygen. The liquid shown is green, viscous, and foaming and looks a bit like the monster's body fluid in Alien. Liquid oxygen is colorless, non-viscous and doesn't produce sticky bubbles.



When Kelvin gives Rheya the pill to relax, note that she takes a sip of water first and then puts the pill in her mouth. When director, Steven Soderbergh, asked Natascha McElhone if she did this as a part of her performance, as possibly a statement that if "you are created by Solaris that is how you take a pill?" Natascha was confused and informed him that was simply how she took pills.
