“ROCKET SCIENCE” EXTENDED VIDEO SHOWCASE

“Rocket Science” Trailer
Before we get into standalone clips, it’s important to acclimate you, the reader, with the film. Premiering at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, Jeffrey Blitz’s “Rocket Science” tells the tale of Hal Hefner, stuttering high school student and latest debate team member. Love, Violent Femmes and the importance of having an agenda, “Rocket Science” leaves no subject untouched… nor any heart.
