The movie is about four school boys from a mining village who dreamed of making it big. A dream that changed the history of mankind. A dream to fly a ROCKET.
They had to fight all the odds, Prove everybody wrong and had to accomplish something which was almost Impossible. And that is exaclty what they did.
Powered by some exeptional performance and great screenplay this one truely is a gem of a Movie. This one will get a spot somewhere in top of my all time favourites.
Quentin: What do you want to know about rockets?
Homer : Everything.
Quentin: They watched us get arrested. We're practically ex-convicts. They'll never dance with us.
O'Dell: Jesus, Quentin, you don't know anything about women.
Jake Mosby: Whole damn mountain about fell on your head. And John here, he saved your life.
Homer: That's my dad.
