I apparently was the audience for man on a mission. Took my 11 year old son to see it and he was enamored with it as well. Here's a truly self-made man. A geek who had been around astronauts all his life, wanted to be one desperately but couldn't because of his eyesight. He starts his own company, makes a fortune, loses most of it in the tech bubble, keeps working and literally creates a path to space for himself. He then spends most of his fortune and puts aside a year of his life to follow his ultimate dream. I cannot envision a more American story than creating a way for the Russians to sell you a seat into space! It's a story of courage, conviction and capitalism at it's best. Richard has forged a path to allow our grandchildren to go into space. It's also a story of a bond between a father and son. Their reunion on Richard's return had me near tears. So who is the audience? Anyone who has ever looked at the moon or the stars, who has looked at something they perceive as unattainable and want it badly, any father who wants his son or daughter to see the potential in themselves - that's the audience.
