In Coalwood, West Virginia, 1957, coal mining is king and no one can escape life underground.But when high schooler Homer Hickam, Jr. (Jake Gyllenhaal) sees the Soviet satellite Sputnik streak overhead, he aims for the stars and a new destiny in this incredible true story of hope, determination and triumph.With the help of his teacher (Laura Dern) and three buddies, Homer sets out to build his own rocket.How Homer overcomes seemingly impossible obstacles-poor education, a disapproving father (Chris Cooper) and a series of misfires that threaten to flatten his dreams and the town- and fulfills his vision is the launching pad for one of the most timeless, inspirational stories ever brought to the screen.
"You'll laugh with it, cry with it, and go away absolutely loving it," says Robert Butler of OCTOBER SKY, a universally-acclaimed achievement filled with humor, superb performances and classic rock 'n' roll.
