Film Screening - "The Astronaut Farmer"

Burbank Public Library Presents...

Sci-Fi Cinema

Come join us next Friday for a special Burbank READS movie tie-in, a screening of the movie “The Astronaut Farmer"

"If we don't have our dreams, we have nothing."

Friday, April 4, 2008 2:00 PM

All systems are "Go" for Charles Farmer. He's faced bank foreclosure, neighborhood naysayers and a government alarmed by the purchase of high-grade fuel, but now he's ready to blast into space inside the homemade rocket he built in his barn. Billy Bob Thornton portrays Charlie in this charmer about chasing dreams...and about what it means to be a family. He needs a launch/recovery crew, and he has one of the best: his wife (Virginia Madsen) and children, dreamers all. They have liftoff. Our spirits have uplift. Gravity cannot hold down our dreams.

Run-time 104 minutes; rated PG
