    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. – Reactgular Aug 30 '13 at 10:19
