Apollo 13 Synopsis
"Houston, we have a problem," Astronaut Jim Lovell (perfectly played by Tom Hanks) informs NASA early on in the Apollo 13 space flight to the moon. This excellent depiction of the crisis that ensues and NASA's heroic attempts to bring the Astronauts home alive was directed by Ron Howard and ably acted by Ed Harris, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Kevin Bacon and Kathleen Quinlan to name just a few.
