Determined to change things, she thinks big and, with the beautifying touch of her best friend Nadine (Poppy Liu), her “rigged” application lands her in NASA’s competitive astronaut training program. Overwhelmed by the situation, Rex relies on her ingenuity, her courage and her determination to reach the best places in her class. NASA program directors Pam (Gabrielle Union) and Logan (Tom Hopper) pay attention to her, but can this Florida girl make it through training and reach the cosmos before the truth is discovered? Written and directed by Liz W. García (“Purple Hearts,” “The Sinner”), Space Cadet is a comedy about the power of being yourself, following your dreams and thinking big, to the stars.
