Discover the truth behind the headlines in this biopic depicting the career of Neil Armstrong from Project Gemini to the historic Apollo 11 moon landing. Armstrong suffered hardship and tragedy before his triumphant “giant leap for mankind” took him into legend.
“After seeing First Man, it’s doubtful you’ll think about space flight, or Armstrong’s historic walk, in quite the same way” (Variety).
