The 1950s space race inspires four West Virginia teens to begin creating their own rockets in the hopes of getting out of their coal-mining town.

 

October Sky is the true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner’s son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father’s wishes.

 

Based on the Hickam’s biography, this film stars Jake Gyllenhal, Chris Cooper and Laura Dern.
