In “Apollo 10 1/2” Richard Linklater stages a nostalgic journey to the moon

Before the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to land the first astronauts on the moon, NASA first secretly sent a fourth grader there.

That’s just one of the storylines in Richard Linklater’s new animated film, Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood, streaming now on Netflix. In the film, Linklater takes viewers back to 1969 and takes them on a nostalgic journey to not only see the moon landing, but to experience it, just as he did – growing up while living in and around Houston, Texas, lived.
