Based on the true story of José Moreno Hernández. The first Spanish migrant to become a NASA astronaut. While in orbit on his Space Shuttle mission in 2009, he also became the first person to use the Spanish language in space while tweeting. The role of Hernández is played by Michael Peña. The actor previously played an astronaut in The Martian.

An impressive biography about Hernández's life and his dedication to becoming an astronaut. A story that is accompanied by the necessary setbacks, the determination to achieve your goal and realize your big dream. The film manages to portray his life story within an acceptable amount of time. This combined with attractive visual effects. Still, it's not something we've ever seen before.

3.0 *

Reasonable film about a man who manages to go from farm worker to astronaut. A beautiful true story in itself. However, this biopic plays it way too safe and the course is quite predictable. I've all seen it before and the personal life of the main character didn't really interest me. A narrow 3.0 stars, because the film is not bad either.

True life story about the son of a Mexican day laborer, who works his way against the grain to become an astronaut. A good feeling film par excellence. Not an absolute winner, but certainly worth it.
