A riveting look at the life and career of astronaut Neil Armstrong and the events leading up the 1969 moon landing. 

Told from Armstrong’s perspective, this visceral and intimate account of the first manned mission to the moon focuses on Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. 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, which led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

Stars Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Ciarán Hinds and Corey Stoll. Directed by Damien Chazelle (on the heels of his six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land) and written by Josh Singer (Spotlight, The Post), based on the book by James R Hansen.
