Movie Summary:

A look at the life of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

The Bent*Spud 2 Cents:

Oscar-winning "La La Land" director Damien Chazelle tries his hand at a biopic drama about American astronaut hero Neil Armstrong, with some mixed results. It only clocks in at 2 hours and 21 minutes, but it sure feels like an eternity with the dreadfully slow pace. Definitely going to be positioned as an "acting" vehicle for Ryan Gosling come Oscars time, though I didn't see anything we haven't seen before from him.
