"Upside Down" movie quotes tell the fantasy romance tale of two people in love but unable to be together as they literally live on different planets. Juan Diego Solanas wrote the screenplay for the film and directed it, which first was released in Russia in August 2012. "Upside Down" made its American debut on March 15, 2013.

In "Upside Down," Adam (Jim Sturgess), a smart yet sad young guy, lives on the lower planet of a twin-planet world. The two planets are nearly identical, save for the economic worlds of each--the upper planet being wealthy and the lower in poverty--but habitants of the planets do not move between the planets or interact in any way. Each planet also has it's own equal gravity, the upper planet pulling up and the lower pulling down.

As a child, Adam meets a young girl from the upper planet, Eden (Kirsten Dunst), and they form a romantic relationship. However, one day they are caught together and Eden falls back to her planet, landing on a mountain and suffering brain damage that causes her to forget everything. Adam thinks Eden has died but many years later finds out she is alive. This leads Adam on an epic mission to reunite with Eden even when doing so could have deadly consequences.

If "Upside Down" is a bit too far out there for you, fret not! There are many other movies in theaters at the same time such as "Ginger & Rosa," "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," "Emperor," "Dead Man Down," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Stoker," "Phantom," "Jack and the Giant Slayer," "Dark Skies," "Snitch," "Beautiful Creatures," "Escape From Planet Earth 3D," "A Good Day to Die Hard," "Safe Haven," "A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III," "Side Effects," and "Identity Thief."
