    I showed this to a group of 7th graders who had just studied the Cold War. They loved the movie. Great acting.

    This is a wonderful film. There is a bit of salty laguage...teenage boys and miners...what do you expect? But there is one comment from one boy to another as they are watching the sky for Sputnik that simply does not need to be there and would be a potential for "Mommy what does THAT mean?" from children. Fast forward. Other than that it is a great film.

  • October Sky DVD

    A great science or history movie to show students 7th through 12th grades. It is so spell binding it works even for substitutes. I suggest to edit out/sensor the few well spoken curse words though.

    Terrific movie. I teach high school and I show it every year to my students for inspiration!
