Product Details

John Corbett plays Mike Kersjes, a special education teacher who helps his students achieve their impossible dream: to attend Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Their inspiring journey is based on a true story. Space Camp is a competitive educational program. Although it was designed for gifted science students, Mike decides participating in the summer program would do wonders for the self-esteem of his young, special ed students—especially one who wants to be an astronaut. Kersjes is aided in his mission by another teacher, Robynn McKinney (Jessy Schram). He faces incredible obstacles to make his impossible dream become a reality. But it was after they were finally given the green light that the real challenge began—how to get kids with Down syndrome, Tourette’s, learning disabilities and emotional problems to coalesce into a team. After nine months of rigorous training and preparation, the class molded itself into a working team where they turned in a performance so surprising that it will leave you amazed.

    A Smile As Big As the Moon

    This is the third copy of this movie I've bought because it is such a great feel-good movie about overcomers. I loaned the two previous copies out and they were not returned. Lesson learned and this copy isn't going anywhere.
