October Sky

In Coalwood, West Virginia in 1957, all boys grow up to be coal miners. Homer Hickam (Jake Gyllenhaal) had no reason to think he'd be any different. Too small to earn a football scholarship, Homer had no way out of his predetermined life - until the Soviet satellite Sputnik flew overhead in the October sky and changed everything. Based on a true story.
