The Dish also does a nice job of evoking what 1969 was like for people who didn't live in San Francisco, Paris or even Melbourne, Australia.

Rating: B -- A satellite dish sitting in the middle of an Australian sheep farm might not sound like the most compelling subject to base a story around, but there are hidden charms in this graceful film that add up to something quite out of the ordinary. Full Review

Description by

It's the biggest event since sheep invented wool! Apollo 11's astronauts will walk on the moon -- and the 1,000-ton satellite dish in tiny, sheep-farming Parkes, Australia, will beam that historic first step around the globe. But as giddy citizens prepare for the moment when the entire world will depend on them, the dish flatlines. And its unconventional Aussie crew and by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. have very different ideas about how to fix it.
