Astronaut is the newest film about a rocket-man to arrive in theaters, just in time for the semicentennial of the Apollo 11 mission. This one stars Richard Dreyfuss as a widower who wins a national competition to board the first commercial space flight to the moon. Shelagh McLeod wrote and directed this family-friendly drama about dreams, aging, and second chances, with the tone dialed in to inspire the warm fuzzies.

Universal Cinema AMC at CityWalk, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City; Fri., July 26, various showtimes. (818)
