Angus (Richard Dreyfuss) is an elderly widower living out his retirement days in a typically dysfunctional modern family. When a billionaire businessman announces, live on television, a once-in-a-lifetime competition to grant three civilians a place on a commercial test flight into space, Angus sees his chance to live out what has been a lifelong dream. Lying about his age, Angus enters the competition, only to win one of the three golden tickets. But will he ultimately make it onto the flight and see his dreams realised or will reality bring him straight back down to earth?

A little gem of a film - Astronaut review by HB

Spoiler Alert

What a lovely film this turned out to be, it was well cast, beautifully filmed and had a simple intriguing storyline. Just when you think you can predict what will happen, the film goes off in a very different direction. At the heart of this story is family relationships and it deals primarily with the way we families treat their ageing members. It is a film of hope and anticipation and most suitable for any children 8+, mak8ng it a good family film. I do not want to give any of the plot away but I can say this film is not about being in space.

Garbage - Astronaut review by DH

Spoiler Alert

The 2 executive producers (the ones who put up the money) are Dreyfus and the guy who plays his son in law! Enough said!

This is so bad and clearly a vehicle for them both. You are supposed to believe that no one checks anything. If you want to be on X Factor they check your passport but no we don't bother if you are going into space and feel free to just wander around a top secret establishment and join the CEO in the boardroom. Who wrote this rubbish?

Always a disaster when the star is involved in the decision making as they are too close!
