Capricorn One

Directed by Peter Hyams

Capricorn One is like an evil sibling of Apollo 13. It begins with a space mission facing disaster. But instead of inspiring people to work together to save the mission, the disaster compels a shadowy cabal to launch a cover-up conspiracy. It’s a sci-fi thriller for the All the President’s Men era with sharp direction from Peter Hyams and a solid cast led by the great Elliott Gould.
