Beautiful Documentary For Those Who Stay Behind...
16 November 2001 | by (The Seven Sisters...) – See all my reviews

This is truly an epic, insightful documentary on the preparation and launch of the gateway that is the Space Shuttle. The editing is flawlessly done, creating stories inside stories of the people behind the ship itself. Combined with the hauntingly brilliant soundtrack, it is a touching, empowering, and honest portrayal of the tireless human desire to explore and go beyond.
