“A coming of age story, inspired by Linklater’s own life, Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood takes you to the moon and back in this story about growing up in the 1960s in Houston, TX.”
Richard Linklater has directed and written the critically acclaimed coming-of-age drama Boyhood, and the genre-defining Before Trilogy. He has previously made Waking Life which was animated using live-action techniques much like Apollo 10 1/2.
It’s the summer of ’69 and life is filled with fast food, cycling, house parties, televised rocket launches during the space race, and witnessing the emergence of hippie culture while America’s political landscape is drastically changing.
When NASA accidentally builds a lunar capsule Apollo too small to fit a regular astronaut, Stanley’s father asks him to take over the role.
