A look at 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.
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award winning smash, ‘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 (Gosling) and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost on Armstrong and on the nation of one of the most dangerous missions in history. In this early Oscar contender, Claire Foy plays Janet Shearon, Armstrong’s first wife, Corey Stoll plays Buzz Aldrin, Kyle Chander is Deke Slayton, and Jason Clarke plays Ed White.
