Reviews
Mine: A terrific movie. A must see for all kids. Based on a true story this is a moving and powerful story of growing up, dreaming and the power of people.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: The true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father's wishes.
