Movie Info

The true story of a group of eccentric scientists who are responsible for manning a satellite dish inauspiciously located on a remote Australian sheep farm. Much to NASA's alarm, the unconventional Aussie team -- led by Cliff Buxton (Sam Neill) -- are the world's only hope for receiving the historic images of man's first steps on the moon. With help from the colorful cast of local characters, the crew struggles to overcome a series of mishaps.

    A bit slow but once you get into it, its a pretty good movie. Imagine what it must have been like... learnt something new to find the images had come from Oz!

    interesting if you're completely obsessed with sam neill or radio dishes. however if you're not there's not much else going on except some slight light humour
