From Farm Worker to Astronaut: The Real-Life Story of “A Million Miles Away”

Manny The Movie Guy

It was such an honor to talk to the inspiration behind the film “A Million Miles Away.” José Hernández was a man of passion and his dream of reaching for the stars is the heart of the new Amazon Prime movie.  From director Alejandra Márquez Abella , Hernandez (wonderfully played in the film by Michael Pena) grew up as a farm worker and followed his dream of becoming an astronaut.

Take a look at my interview with Hernández.  Did he like the movie?  What about Pena’s performance?

“A Million Miles Away” is now out on Amazon Prime.
