I was at the Brentwood Branch library the other day, and came across a movie that I had intended to see when it was released back in 2007, but I never got around to it... until now. The movie is called In The Shadow Of The Moon... and what a wonderful film it is.
For those of us who remember the early days of the first manned space flights, and later sat in awe around the family television set watching the first moon landing, this movie is a must-see. But even if all you have ever known is the space shuttle, this movie is something not to be missed. Just fantastic.
That was a very special time in our history, and this movie helps remind us of just how special it was. We could use a little of that wonder in our lives today.
