SEE IF APOLLO 10 1/2 ON NETFLIX, IS BASED ON TRUE STORIES!
On Netflix, you can watch Apollo 10 1/2! Continue reading to find out if the film is based on a true story! Richard Linklater’s movies have a distinct, almost proud sense of being local and personal in most, but not all, of them. Read this for more information on Netflix’s new releases.
Although Linklater isn’t as dedicated as fellow Texan Robert Rodriguez, at least in terms of the number of roles he can play in a single film, his movies are imbued with a passion and an awareness that no one else could tell these stories because they are uniquely Linklater’s to tell.
In the new animated film Apollo 10 1/2, this passion is evident. Les Fusées de mon Enfance, which has a good intention but isn’t particularly interesting, and is the author’s first film, was made for streaming giant Netflix. It’s a sweet, friendly, low-key affair that feels more like a home movie Linklater gathered to show his grandchildren than a story. But then there was Apollo 10 1/2. Is it true that A Space Age Childhood is based on a true story? Everything is revealed to you!
WAS A TRUE STORY THE INSPIRATION FOR APOLLO 10 1/2 LES FUSÉES DE MY ENFANCE?
Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood is based in part on Linklater’s own childhood experiences. In addition to directing the film, Linklater wrote and co-produced it. “It was while I was doing ‘Boyhood,’ that I first thought of it and thought to myself, ‘It was an amazing time (to be a kid),'” he said in an interview, adding, “It was while I was doing ‘Boyhood,’ that I first thought of it and thought to myself, ‘It was an amazing time (to be a kid).”
Even though Linklater admitted that Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood is an “embarrassing and personal” film, he clarified that Stan is not his double. Stan is a composite character based on Linklater’s, his family’s, and his friends’ experiences. He talked to his siblings to fill in the blanks in his memory.
In addition, Linklater did not attend Ed White Elementary School, nor did his father work for NASA. Above all, he wanted to make a fun movie, so he looked for inspiration in the lives of people other than his family.
Many videos sent in by people who lived in Houston in the 1960s were used by Linklater and his team. Linklater’s life is based on Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood to some extent. It also incorporates information from a variety of other sources to create a cohesive story.
