Astronaut Farmer
Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton stars as a man who refuses to give up on his dreams in this inspirational family drama filled with heart, humor and a healthy dose of social satire. As a farmer, family man and former astronaut-in-training, Charles Farmer (Thornton--Mr. Woodcock) chases his lifelong dream to reach the stars by building his very own spacecraft … in his barn! With the support of his family and friends -- played by Virginia Madsen ("Smith," Sideways), Bruce Dern ("Big Love") and Tim Blake Nelson (Minority Report) -- Farmer bravely faces the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, Federal Aviation Administration and financial ruin to overcome every obstacle that stands in the way of his launch and his dreams.
