Damien Chazelle directs this US biographical drama about astronaut Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) as he prepares to lead NASA's Apollo 11 mission to land a man on the Moon in the late 1960s. As pressure begins to mount around the impending mission and recurrent failings of the spacecraft leave the project hanging in the balance, Neil must question whether the need to fulfil mankind's biggest adventure outweighs the risk of possibly leaving his family behind forever and never returning home. The cast also includes Claire Foy, Corey Stoll, Kyle Chandler and Jason Clarke.
This movie examines the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. The movie look at the man and the relationship with his wife and family. Maybe it's a little to long and at time the pace of the movie is like watching the grass grow but over all it's a well made movie and tells a good biography story. Can recommend 7 out of 10
