Poster from movie First ManYou may know who the first man to step foot on the Moon was, but you may not know his backstory. Our third Friday Flicks recommendation is First Man! Starring Ryan Gosling, this film looks into the life of astronaut Neil Armstrong on the famous Apollo 11 mission, which led to him being the first man to walk on the Moon in 1969. Director Damien Chezelle wanted to be sure this film was as accurate as possible (our favorite!), and focused on the details of the reproduction of space capsules, and even made sure the ships were as true to size as possible, even if that meant the actors were uncomfortable in their seats. Check out First Man!
