This is a beautiful movie. It brings tears to my eyes each time I watch it. No one could stop this man from achieving his dream. With family support and a courageous mind to guide him, he hammered through all the tribulations he faced from friends, the media and government. Don't let anyone poison your dreams. It takes hard work and dedication to make your dream a reality.

Old Movie, but It is down to earth. That's how should Family should Dream. I do remember those days, Dreaming about amazing thing I can do, instead of play games on portable phones. I would put this on the list for family movie night. It's not High-tech, but make you sit and think.......

I show this film to my physics and earth science students to encourage them to make their dreams reality. Anyone can design and build a rocket in his/her barn!
