"The Right Stuff" (1983)
It may be a long movie at three hours and 13 minutes, but "The Right Stuff" keeps audiences in their seats by looking at the beginning of the space age. The movie is directed by Philip Kaufman based on the novel by Tom Wolfe and features not only incredible aerial sequences but also myth-making and -debunking along with wonderful performances.
