APOLLO 13
1995, Universal, 140 min, USA, Dir: Ron Howard

“Houston, we have a problem.” An oxygen tank explosion turns what was expected to be a routine lunar mission in 1970 into a race for survival in this acclaimed real-life drama. Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon and Bill Paxton play astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise, who narrowly averted disaster with assistance from NASA’s Mission Control Center. With meticulous attention to detail, APOLLO 13 earned nine Oscar nominations, with wins for Best Film Editing and Best Sound. Gary Sinise, Ed Harris and Kathleen Quinlan costar.

FROST/NIXON
2008, Universal, 122 min, USA/UK/France, Dir: Ron Howard

Based on actual interviews conducted three years after the Watergate scandal, FROST/NIXON sets up an intense battle of the minds between the former U.S. president (Frank Langella) and British journalist David Frost (Michael Sheen). Costarring Sam Rockwell, Kevin Bacon and Rebecca Hall and garnering five Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), the film is one of Howard’s most profound dramatic achievements. “The result is involving, engrossing cinema … filmmaking of a type rarely seen anymore and sorely missed.” Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
