It IS Rocket Science
September marks the beginning of the fall lineup of our free Film Series in Park City. We try to showcase films that continue to make their marks on our cultural history and this month is no exception with Rocket Science, writer/director Jeffrey Blitz’s ingenious story of adolescent love and finding one's voice.
Jeffrey is no stranger to great storytelling: his directorial debut was the Oscar Nominated documentary Spellbound, which followed 8 teenagers on their quest to win the National Spelling Bee. He returned last year to the Festival with another documentary, Lucky, about ordinary people having the extraordinary good luck of winning the lottery.
What these three films have in common are extremely compelling storylines and characters, and a director that proves that it takes a skillful eye and a finely tuned ear for dialogue to make movie magic.
See? It IS Rocket Science!
