October Sky


October Sky In Coalwood, West Virginia, 1957, coal mining is king and no one can escape life underground. But when high schooler Homer Hickam, Jr. (Jake Gyllenhal) sees the Soviet satellite Sputnik streak overhead, he aims for the stars and a new destiny in this incredible true story of hope, determination and triumph.

With the help of his teacher (Laura Dern) and three buddies, Homer sets out to build his own rocket. Despite his father's (Chris Cooper) disapproval, a limited education and a series of misfires that threaten to flatten his dreams and the town, Homer overcomes seemingly impossible odds to fulfill his vision in one of the most timeless, inspiring stories ever brought to the screen.

OCTOBER SKY is ''A great moviegoing experience. It is hard to imagine anyone... who won't laugh with it, cry with it and go away absolutely loving it,'' says Robert W. Butler (Knight Ridder News Service). Enjoy this universally-acclaimed achievement filled with humour, superb performances and classic rock 'n' roll.
