The other side of the story dealt with the different ways that the people at NASA and Watney's teammates dealt with the news of his death and then his unexpected survival. In the end their dedication to bring their friend home was a tad inspirational - albeit predictable. I also loved the technology and special effects of the move. I really liked the movie, recommend it to you and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★.
