Astronaut Farmer—The movie is a story for dreamers and creative individuals. It is an encouraging story for young and mature minds on several levels. It demonstrates victory against the most incredible odds. The characters include a bright teenager who is able to think, articulate, and act with responsibility to achieve what others only believe is only with advanced education. A father who not only believes he is capable of achieving his dream, but realizes he has no option but to press on—to complete his mission, so that his children will be empowered, against all odds, to believe in themselves and their abilities. Moreover, it is a story for adults to know that dreams can come true. It was a motivating and demonstrated that even seemingly insurmountable obstacles can turn out to be only smoke screens; with perseverance and fortitude dreams can be realized.

This is a wholesome family movie... It has some realistic items pertaining to everyday life, but it is a movie about hopes and dreams... Everyone must have hope and everyone must have dreams.. Without them what is the point? Billy Bob Thornton did an excellent job portraying a husband, father and one with a dream he wouldn't let die... It is about a family pulling together under adversity...

My family loved this movie. It relays a message of never giving up on your dreams no matter how out of reach they seem. It was better than I had anticipated and I would see it again. Take your family to see this movie.
