QUICK TAKE:
Drama: An astronaut trains for the potential to be the first man to walk on the moon, all while contending with the perils of such work and the effect that has on his family.
PLOT:
It's the early 1960s and following the cancer-related death of their young daughter, astronaut Neil Armstrong (RYAN GOSLING) and his wife, Janet (CLAIRE FOY), decide he should pursue trying out for NASA's Gemini program. After meeting fellow candidate Elliott See (PATRICK FUGIT) and being interviewed by NASA's Director of Flight Crew Operations Deke Slayton (KYLE CHANDLER) and Director of NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center Robert Gilruth (CIARAN HINDS), Neil is accepted into the program and they move to Houston across the street from fellow astronaut Ed White (JASON CLARKE) and his wife, Pat (OLIVIA HAMILTON).

As the wives worry about their husbands, Neil, Ed, and others partake in the training where the ultimate goal is to put a man on the moon. As Neil makes his way from the Gemini program over to the Apollo one where he works alongside the likes of Buzz Aldrin (COREY STOLL), he intensely focuses on the work at hand, all of which has an effect on his family life.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
