Retro Rocket

Sputnik-inspired October Sky runs hot and coal

Oh, well. October Sky isn't anywhere near perfect. But it is heartfelt and ultimately quite touching. When the end credits run over home movies showing the real-life characters the film is based on, you feel like you're finally getting to meet those compelling people you've heard so much about. Yes, Homer Hickam Jr. is now a NASA engineer.

October Sky.
Rated PG-13.
Directed by Joe Johnston. With Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Cooper, Laura Dern, Chris Owens and Scott Thomas.
