“The Rocket” to be shown at Salem UMC, April 13

The film “The Rocket” will be shown on April 13, at 6 p.m. at Salem United Methodist Church.

The movie, written and directed by Richard Blake, was shot locally, at Central High School, Fox River Park and other spots in Western Kenosha County. It was released in January 2019.

Says the film’s website:

“The Rocket” is a small town story inspired by true events, about a high school football star who suffers a severe head injury and loses his entire life plan. The heaviness of a broken relationship with his father, and losing the identity of “football star” push him to seek a new way to prove himself. Restricted from playing any sports and despite being an unlikely runner, the cross country coach brings the young man aboard his high school team out of necessity, and through much struggle, doubt, and determination, he finds a new way to push towards greatness.

Salem United Methodist Church is located at 25130 85th St., Salem.
