Our top pick for April

Stowaway

The crew of a deep-space mission to Mars discovers a fourth, accidental passenger, complicating both their journey and their chances for survival as they learn that the ship is only capable of keeping three occupants alive on its two-year voyage. The film’s grim, sci-fi premise is supported by an impressive cast that includes Anna Kendrick, Daniel Dae Kim, Toni Collette, and Shamier Anderson.
