  • 3.3
Two bicycle mechanics from Dayton Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright, dared to believe they could fly. Their dream was so big it launched them into the skies. Now, these brothers are about to face their most difficult day: May 30th, 1912. Orville spends his final moments by his brother's deathbed, reflecting on their lives (the joys and pains, friendships and betrayals, successful flights and fateful crashes). Though they have taught the world to fly, they have made enormous sacrifices along the way. With years of partnering about to end, they are haunted by the question, "Was it worth it?"

In this dramatic recount of the Wright Brothers' we get a glimpse of the bond between the two. The ailing Wilbur endures betrayal and court trials, as his brother stays loyal to him and to their dream. The film does get melodramatic, but these men are so important in history and science, it's well worth to see this human side of them, as well.
