The riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.  A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost – on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself – of one of the most dangerous missions in history.  Directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling and Claire FoyFrom the official website

“Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. It’s such a commonplace piece of knowledge now that the terrifying wonder, the global ramifications of that moment, have been lost. Space travel has become the property of billionaire technocrat dude-bros. What director Damien Chazelle and actor Ryan Gosling as Armstrong have undertaken in this tale of the early days of space exploration is a rescue mission: to reclaim as heroes these fragile men, strapping themselves into ramshackle machines and hurling themselves into the wondrous void to give us a new horizon.”  Austin Chronicle

 “Ryan Gosling plays Neil Armstrong as a hero of relatively few words but Claire Foy provides the emotional heft (and the Oscar buzz) as the steadfast spouse of the lunar legend.”  Radio Times

 “This is at once cracking, deep-cutting, free-flowing in a defined range, fast and compelling.”  Eye for Film
