Too long to be a ABC Family movie on TV, but with all the elements, I loved The Astronaut Farmer.
More movies need to be like this. Say what you will about Bill Bob Thorton. He brings real character to the screen displays a warmth and humanity you don’t see in a lot of modern actors. You have conflict among people, but not because of hatred or malice but rather the more expected issues of fear, ignorance and even love.
I think this will go into my DVD collection. It was great fun to watch.
Does he make a successful space shot? I’m not going to tell you!
The Astronaut Farmer is a great family movie. If it’s not in theaters as you read this, catch it when the DVD is out.
