    This is a family drama that truly hits home. October Sky, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, is based on the true events of Homer Hickman. It covers the story of Hickman struggling to follow his dream of becoming a rocket scientist, as his family (mainly his father, who would rather have him by his side at a local coal mine) dissapproves and dismisses his true passion. Most of us can relate to the storyline, as most of our parents have their own ideas of what we should do with our lives, while disregarding our plans. Visually, it is utterly pleasing- misty and passive aggressive in colour.
