I've been searching for a space movie from about 1992 or later.
The premise is a young man and woman are in some sort of training to become space pilots or cadets or military people.
There is some sort of problem on the planet, which I think is Earth. They go to visit their parents who live in some fancy house near a desert. The parents think everything is going to be great, but the kids are worried about some conflict.
The young people are scheduled to leave for space travel in a few weeks, but some tragedy happens (i.e. a bomb, an attack, etc.) and the planet is in big trouble. They return to their parent's house which has been destroyed and both parents are dead.
The kids end up sneaking onto a spaceship and leave the planet and the movie ends.
I think this came out around the same time as Gattaca (1997), but I can't recall the title and searching has been futile.
