(2018) (Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
