  • Earth is in some sort of problem and humanity is living in a space station or on the fake utopian planet
  • The main character is a woman, trying to survive

Any idea when this may have been made - for example, when you saw it would exclude more recent movies. – iandotkelly Jul 31 '13 at 4:08

The movie is Cargo, in case you never found it. I found this forum searching for the same film..

From Wikipedia:

Lindbergh realizes that Portmann doesn't trust her and restrains her too, revealing to her that Rhea is a giant virtual reality simulation on a station in orbit around the actual, uninhabitable, planet.

Except for the big corporation aspect, that describes an episode of the original Star Trek series: For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky (1968) which no doubt inspired many similar stories.

I was going to say it describes many TV episodes. There is one just like this in Stargate, Outer Limits and a few others. – ThinkingMedia Aug 30 '13 at 10:19
