Movie quote from: October Sky (1999) - Miss Riley (Laura Dern)
In the moving 1999 film, October Sky, Homer Hickham wants to build rockets. His Dad wants him to work in the coal mine. The pressures of life are not in Homer’s favor as he pursues his growing love of model rocketry. It takes a teacher to encourage him to dream bigger than his own community would allow. This is the great power of a supportive mentor in a person’s life.
