Embarrassing confession

One of my favourite ever movies is Apollo 13. It was repeated again on television last night.

I always cry at the end when they make it safely home. I don't usually get too emotional about films so it's a bit strange that I cry at this one. Even having seen it at least ten times, and knowing that they get back to earth safely, I still cry. The music is very stirring and it's something about all those people celebrating their safe return that brings on the tears, I think.

Weird, isn't it?

I find it such a powerful story because both the astronauts and their families were incredibly brave to even embark on such a risky venture. So I get it!
