The Sound Barrier

David Lean United Kingdom, 1952

Savygator's rating of the film Breaking the Sound Barrier

Great film. Wonderful storyline, would recommend it to anyone. Normally don't see a lot of black & white films, but was a great time period in the film, sets, all fitting the 50's. The way the film captured both the science and the emotion of the role science captures the families lifestyle. David Lean did an amazing job of having the story capture the trials and fails of a experiment to accomplish great things.
