The Dish
The Dish
Starring honorary Australian Sam Neil, The Dish is very much a comedy, but based on actual events. In 1969, Australia became a crucial part of the space race as the location of one of the world's largest radio telescope dishes. The 'dish' was essential to collecting the revelatory images from the Apollo 11 mission.

A film with plenty of charm and requisite Australian larrikins, The Dish perfectly captures the spirit of the times in which it is set.

"The Dish has affection for every one of its characters...[it] understands their ambitions, doesn't mock them and is very funny." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
