Beyond the Stars is a 1989 drama film written and directed by David Saperstein and starred Martin Sheen, Christian Slater, Sharon Stone, Olivia d'Abo and F. Murray Abraham. This science fiction drama centers on Eric, teenage son of a computer scientist who worked for the Apollo program which sent the first humans to the moon. Eric, determined to become an astronaut himself one day, befriends Paul Andrews, the thirteenth man on the moon. Paul is avoided by other astronauts nowadays because he was very rude and rebuffing when he returned from space. Eric slowly learns that Paul discovered something during his excursion on the moon that he keeps as a secret. The movie was filmed in and around Huntsville, Alabama and the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, and outside of Vancouver, British Columbia.
