First Man (2018)
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon. Focusing on Neil Armstrong during the years of 1961-1969.
A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, this film explores the sacrifices and the cost, both on Armstrong and on the nation, of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
