    The true story of Homer Hickam, a young boy trapped in a close-minded coal-mining town in the 1950's. When Sputnik is successfully launched, Homer becomes obsessed with the concept of rocket launching. To the dismay and disgust of the townspeople, as well as Homer's father, he and his friends try to launch a rocket themselves. With the inspiration of a school teacher, they persevere and never lose hope in the dreams. An uplifting, hopeful story that the whole family can enjoy.

      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.

      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.
