Movieing On #298: October Sky

1 hour 9 mins - Published Tue, Sep 4, 2018 by Breki Tomasson, Linnea Kleiner and Nancy Frye

When a book named Rocket Boys gets the anagram treatment when it’s turned into a movie called October Sky, it gets Breki’s attention. When it also turns out to be a lovely coming-of-age movie about a group of boys in the late 1950s who want to build rockets instead of working the coal mines? Well, then you’ve got a movie we want to see.

Stuff we talk about and/or which might be interesting:

Movieing On

Movieing On was a project that we've wanted to do for a long time, and the pieces all fell together in March of 2012, when we began planning the first episode. Featuring some of the CSICON crew's most amazing people, we watch a movie from 1999 or earlier and discuss it.
