Eleven-year-old Jim’s fascination with all things outer space borders on obsession. But with a cool astrophysicist dad who’s scheduled to travel into space, how can you blame him? After moving to a brand new city and enrolling in a brand new school, Jim finds his time to shine in the school’s annual science contest. Determined to recreate Joseph Kittinger’s death-defying helium balloon jump, this little lionhearted boy will do whatever it takes to make his dreams come true… including stealing materials to create his own hot air balloon. But Jim’s plans are thwarted when he’s paired with the prettiest girl in school, and some jealous classmates vow to sabotage his project in revenge. After finding out that his much-admired father is second guessing his own plans for space travel, Jim becomes more determined than ever to prove to his dad that anything is possible. Exciting, dynamic, and imaginative, SPACEBOY is a family-friendly adventure that will transport you to another world. (In French with subtitles) — G.S.
