Oscar winning Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling re-team for this riveting, first-person account of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon. Focussing on Neil Armstrong and the years from 1961-1969, First Man documents the sacrifices and the cost - on Armstrong and on the nation - of one of the most dangerous missions in history that ultimately led to the astronaut being the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.
