Deep Impact (Mimi Leder, USA 1998)

Deep Impact

An interesting mix of personages: a woman that has her daughter around when she’s at work, cosmonauts as parents, an ‘old’ man as cosmonaut, a black president (years before Obama), a teenager boy and girl getting married…  but too scattered along the mainline of the story.
