L'Agriculteur d'Astronaute

It's been quite a long time since I've watched a movie that made me feel as good at the end as this one did.

The Astronaut Farmer, directed by Michael Polish and starring Billy Bob Thornton and Virginia Madsen was a gentle movie, speaking more at times to the majesty of the successful marriage and effective parenting as it does to the follow-through of one's dreams.

The film's premise has the family, especially the wife, pushed to extremes of what she will do out of love, faith and loyalty to her husband and the marriage, which allows for the suspension of disbelief along with the other sci-fi elements.

This is an extremely heart warming film. The sense of family portrayed by the cast is endearing to the point it's almost overwhelming.

I recommend this movie to anyone who, despite the world's constant insistence to the contrary, believes in hope when and especially if it's accompanied by love.

This movie will soften even the most jaded heart. I adore the love this husband and wife team displayed through this entire movie. She encouraged and casted no doubts, amazing what a little support will do for someone's strength.

~ Thank you for reminding me.
