Apollo 11's astronauts will walk on the moon - and the huge satellite dish outside a sheep-farming Australian town will beam it globally. But as giddy locals await the moment the world will rely on them, the dish flatlines. And its Aussie crew and by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. differ on how to fix it. A comical culture clash erupts in this fact-based tale of how history's biggest televised event was almost cancelled.

Maybe not the 'Deal' of the century but it is a film you may not have heard of and will be pleasantly surprised by. Stars Sam Neil.

i would never have even considered watching this, but then it was on when i flew to America and i had nothing better to do.
its a very good movie and i thoroughly enjoyed it, the scene where the school bands plays the American national anthem certainly got a few laughs

Enjoyable film at a decent price - heat added.

It is a good film and it comes on the telly regularly.

Great film - subtle, understated performances, gentle humour and a compelling true life story...

Very funny film. Australian cinema at its best.
