Description: The Earth has become defoliated. An ecological preserve has been lofted into space containing the last specimens of green plants and wildlife. Four astronauts man the space freighter Valley Forge. One of them, a botanist named Freeman Lowell (Bruce Dern), works in the geodesic domes containing a forest lush with plants, trees, and a variety of animals.

RS: 50 Best Sci-Fi Movies of the 1970s (50 movies items)

"A movie that has everything โ€” if by everything you mean Bruce Dern as a long-haired homicidal intergalactic treehugger playing poker with droids, talking to bunnies, and feeling really passionately about salad. The directorial debut of visual effects wiz Douglas Trumbull, Silent Running is a deceptively grim environmentalist allegory about a conservationist who balks at destroying the greenhouses heโ€™s immaculately maintained aboard a giant space freighter. Though in the moral right, Dernโ€™s"

The future kind of sucks. (389 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: All plant life on Earth has been made extinct. Only a few specimens have been preserved in enormous, greenhouse-like geodesic domes attached to a fleet of American Airlines space freighters, just outside the orbit of Saturn. Year it takes place: The far off future."
