In The Shadow Of The Moon
Just been watching a review of this film, and it sounds great. Anyone here seen it?
You are absolutely correct. It never occurred to me, what these men must have thought once they came back to earth/civilian life. You just walked on the moon (or orbited it) and now you are walking the ailses of the local supermarket with our wife and kid... something to think about.... That is, once you've walked on the moon, what can the rest of your life be like? ...
Nope. Director is David Sington. Ron Howard was one of the executive producers, which basically means he put up the cash to make the movie.i gota go and see this, it looks great, i onl have one problem with it and that its directed by ron howard, usualu i dont go to see his stuff, but this time i wll make an exeception,
thanks for the info
What for me was a very poignant moment was when they all, some more overtly, and others more subtly, talked about the struggles they had "coming back to Earth". That is, once you've walked on the moon, what can the rest of your life be like?
interstellar variation I suppose on once you've seen gay Paree how you gonna go back to the farm... I imagine seeing the earth from the moon is a life-changing event, not unlike being a soldier in Vietnam or Iraq, all emotionally overwhelming experiences.
In the meantime I would like to recommend Andrew Smith's excellent book Moon Dust. For those that haven't read it, it details Andrew Smith's quest to track down and speak to the moon men.Seconded, I bought that last year to read on the train back from London, the three hours vanished and I 'had' to sit with a pint in the station's bar to finish it off! A great insight into the men of Apollo.
