MoonFest: The Dish


Those indelible images of man’s first steps on the moon? They would never have been seen by anybody without the efforts of a bunch of eccentric scientists based at a remote sheep farm in Australia. Such is the unlikely true story set-up for this charming Aussie comedy, which sees Sam Neill’s pipe smoking scientist lead a very unconventional team through a series of mishaps to ensure that the world can see Neil Armstrong’s giant leap for mankind when their status as back-up receiver for the epoch-defining TV transmission is upgraded due to a change in Apollo 11’s schedule. Warm, witty and full of hugely enjoyable performances, The Dish is also a welcome reminder that some of humanity’s greatest achievements would never happen without the little people behind the scenes.
