Sean Kelly’s review published on Letterboxd:
Having an Academy Award-winning actor such as Richard Dreyfuss in the lead role definitely helps to elevate a small Canadian film such as Astronaut. Indeed, this is a film that will definitely pull at your heartstrings and make you believe that it is never too late to realize your dreams. Along with having one of the most nuanced performances by Dreyfuss is quite a while, Astronaut also sports solids performances by Colm Feore and Graham Greene, with child actor Richie Lawrence also standing out as Angus’ grandson Barney. Altogether, Astronaut is an absolutely wonderful and heartwarming film.
