The Astronaut Farmer
I have always been fascinated with space. I grew up in the era of the space race, and much of the news in my formative years was about advances in space travel. I have always thought that astronauts were very brave. The Astronaut Farmer is about a man who dreams of traveling into space, and he takes his family along on the dream. Charles Farmer actually builds a rocket in his barn to pursue the adventure of a lifetime. A story of dreams, family and perseverance. Add the FBI and the concept of finance (do you know what rocket fuel costs?) and you have a good movie. This was a solid rental for me.
