On 13 April 1970, an oxygen tank exploded on the service module of the Apollo 13 spacecraft, leaving three astronauts stranded some 200,000 miles from home. Howard's screen retelling is a big, epic adventure with a proudly patriotic stance. The space photography is just fantastic and the acting as good as it gets. Great entertainment, if a little rich in the apple pie department.

Billy (Bell) finds release from life's daily drudgery, through ballet dancing. As unlikely a leisure pursuit as that might be for a teenage boy growing up in the recession-hit County Durham of the 80s (and that's the point), it becomes young Billy's ticket out of hard times. Making his film debut, theatre director Daldry handles the political backdrop and dramatic foreground with equal assurance. The dance routines provide much of the film's humour and quite overwhelming feelgood factor.
