I really enjoyed the movie because I know the place is represents. It was filmed in Tennessee because there were no places for the actors and crew to stay and the area is much rougher than depicted so there would not be enough space to make the movie. I would have done anything to get away from there.

Excellent biopic with a strong cast, follows a well worn path but with enough intelligence not to be too saccharin. Whilst the main story of a young mans battle to break the chains is great, the back story of working in the coal mine and its hardness is also gripping.

Emotional drama of self discovery and nonconformity with great performances and a truly heartwarming moral to the story.

A wonderful, inspiring, & heartwarming film. It's nolstagic, well directed/written, & has an unforgettable and important story. What a film, and a criminally underrated coming of age film at that.

October Sky is an emotional drama that is fast paced and full of realistic characters and situations. It's story feels relevant even now. As much as the science and rockets are inspiring to watch, the brawl between Gyllenhaal and his father character is equally engaging.

Nice uplifting, small-town flick. Cooper is great.
