Full film details

Following his service in Korea and now being established as a civilian test pilot, Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) leads a fairly normal family life. Living with his wife, Janet (Claire Foy), and child, Armstrong’s illustrious career as a test pilot may be about to lead him in a direction that’s a lot less ordinary…

Joining NASA as part of the programme aiming to land on the moon before the Russians, Armstrong is tasked with a difficult, and potentially deadly, role. Janet, who believed life may be more normal for her family, is unsure about the entire venture, and the rush to reach the moon quickly could sabotage the entire flight.

First Man, a stunning biopic of one of the world’s most famous men, explores the life of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. Directed by Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Armstrong is played by Ryan Gosling (Blade Runner 2049).

Alongside Gosling is Claire Foy (The Lady in the Van, The Crown) as Armstrong’s wife, Janet, with Pablo Schreiber (13 Hours), Jon Bernthal (The Accountant), and Corey Stoll (Ant-Man). The screenplay is adapted from the biography First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen.
