Episode 7: Apollo 13

Acting Out with Ryan and Mitchell

May 31 2022 • 1 hr 33 mins

Let’s go to the moon! Or… maybe not. On this week’s episode of Acting Out, we’re talking about Ron Howard’s 1995 space drama Apollo 13. We discuss how this is (easily) Howard’s best film, question why he hasn’t made more films like this, examine the film’s portrayal of America’s relationship with astronauts and the space race, and dissect a very fine and somewhat underrated Tom Hanks performance at the film’s center.
