  • Vamonos Coworking Jl. HOS Cokroaminoto No. 84-86 Menteng, DKI Jakarta, 10310 Indonesia (map)

Get ready to test your listening and understanding skills by watching an English movie "October Sky." We'll have a short discussion to review the movie at the end. 

About the movie: October Sky

John Hickam (Chris Cooper) is a West Virginia coal miner who loves his job and expects his sons, Jim (Scott Miles) and Homer (Jake Gyllenhaal), to follow in his footsteps. But Jim gets a football scholarship, and Homer becomes interested in rocket science after seeing Sputnik 1 crossing the sky. John disapproves of his son's new mania, but Homer begins building rockets with the help of friends and a sympathetic teacher (Laura Dern). Rocketry, he hopes, will prove his ticket to a better life.

Please come on time as we will start the movie as scheduled. Lights refreshments and drinks will be provided. Note: This is a Duolingo English Jakarta & Vamonos Coworking Members only event.
