Summary: "Four stars" (Roger Ebert). A space mission to the moon takes a disastrous turn in Ron Howard's gripping 1995 Oscar(R)-winner. Chronicling the real-life drama of the ill-fated 1970 NASA mission, the film follows astronauts Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) as their dream journey to the moon is shattered by an on-board oxygen-tank explosion. With their air supply rapidly dwindling, the trio must rely on sheer courage and the brain trust at Mission Control to avoid an almost certain tragedy. Gary Sinise, Ed Harris and Kathleen Quinlan co-star. Directed by Ron Howard; screenplay by William Broyles Jr. & Al Reinert, based on the book Lost Moon by Jim Lovell & Jeffrey Kluger. (PG) (AC,AL)
