"October Sky" a/k/a "Rocket Boys". Biographical films are always the best ones! "October Sky" has a special place in my heart.

"Dad, I may not be the best, but I come to believe that I got it in me to be somebody in this world. And it's not because I'm so different from you either, it's because I'm the same. I mean, I can be just as hard-headed, and just as tough. I only hope I can be as good a man as you."

October Sky - Family Movie Night

Homer Hickam official Web site – The Dinosaur Hunter, October Sky/Rocket Boys. I can't say enough good things about this movie (or the book, if you chose:)). It will transport you back to a time of hard work, values and hope. An amazing true story!

He grew up to be such a hottie!  October Sky (1999). An “inspirational” movie that isn’t absurdly sappy (and stars a very young Jake Gyllenhaal). | 89 Incredibly Wonderful Movies You Need To Watch With Your Kids
