Sacrifice. Though we try to have a little fun with the definition, we are mostly talking about a heroic or redemptive sacrifice. A character who chooses to end their story in order for the greater story to continue. The film world is rife with examples! This week on CinemaJaw, in honor of our review of Netflix latest astronaut film, Stowaway, we are covering our Top 5 Sacrifices in film.

Speaking of astronauts… We need an intrepid voyager to join us on this mission.

Chris Brodhead is a filmmaker, podcaster, entrepreneur and former employee of NASA. Chris went to film school and received his MBA from UCF, then worked for NASA until realizing his heart was more focused on writing and directing films so he moved to Chicago to study comedy and then to Los Angeles to continue pursuing his filmmaking dreams while avoiding the winter. He currently owns and manages the podcast production company and hosts the podcast “Anxious Filmmaker” Connect with him on LI if ya want @ChrisBrodhead on Instagram ( and @AnxiousFilmmaker on TikTok (
