|Directed By:||Michael Polish|
I always dreamt of being an astronaut too, but I guess my problem is that I’m not a farmer, or a Farmer for that matter.
Anyway, Billy Bob Thornton is Charles Farmer. He was in line to be an astronaut but family stuff got in his way. He still wanted to end up in space so he set out on his life quest to build a rocket and become an astronaut. It seems the government isn’t too keen on someone being an astronaut on their own, so they try to put an end to Charles’ dream, but Charles is a stubborn man, with the love of a good woman, Audie (Virginia Madsen), and great kids.
This looks like a feel-good movie for the entire family, especially for the kids that don’t think they are too cool anymore, and for anyone who has a dream to fulfill.
That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
