First Man Rated 12A

First Man

Dir. Damien Chazelle. USA, 2018. 2h 21m. Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Pablo Schreiber, Christopher Abbott, Ciarán Hinds, Corey Stoll.

The story of astronaut Neil Armstrong, a quiet engineer who rose through the ranks of NASA’s 1960s space programme to become the first man on the moon. A visceral, first-person account of a monumental moment in 20th-century history from the Oscar-winning director of La La Land and Whiplash.

'In a film that has the Moon landing and multiple rocket launches, he resists the obvious temptation to rely on technical wizardry. This is a human story, remarkably well told.’ ★★★★★ David Lister, The Independent

‘Astonishing. The definitive take on a monumental moment in history - without ever losing sight of the man underneath the visor.’ ★★★★★ John Nugent, Empire Magazine
