In the days before the July 19, 1969 space mission that marked humankind's first steps on the moon, NASA was working with a group of Australian technicians who had agreed to rig up a satellite interface. That the Aussies placed the satellite dish smack dab in the middle of an Australian sheep farm in the boondocks town of Parkes was just one of the reasons that NASA was concerned. Based on a true story, The Dish takes a smart, witty, comical look at the differing cultural attitudes between Australia and the U.S. while revisiting one of the greatest events in history.Written by
The moon phase during the Apollo 11 landing was first quarter, the full moon shots shown in the film wouldn't have been what anyone saw day. Also, being a first quarter, at the time of the landings (almost 10 pm Houston time) the moon was invisible from North America. Australia was the only place that could receive the pictures of the first steps on the moon. See more »

I am a die-hard movie buff and I had never heard of this movie until my brother brought it to Thanksgiving. After watching it I was very pleased. A very fun movie with a great story and a delightfully quirky cast. The movie is worth watching just for Rudi, the security guard. Enjoy.
