Update: Jeff Foust went to see the film and posted this comments on it at jeff_foust on Twitter:
- Went to see “Lunarcy!” this evening in DC. Pleasantly surprised. Expected some ridicule & snark, but was more of an honest character study.
- The director, Simon Ennis, said in a post-screening Q&A he’s a big fan of commercial space. “I’d love to go to space!”
- A few scenes were filmed at the Space Access conference in Phoenix. Ennis does not have fond memories of the Grace Inn.
