First Man (12a)

Director Damien Chazelle. Biography/Drama/History

The riveting story of the 1969 moon landing. Much more focused on the "small step for man" and less on the "giant leap for mankind", this follows Neil Armstrong on his journey to becoming the first man to walk on the moon. The perils and exhilarations of spaceflight are brilliantly conveyed to give you the hair-raising feeling of what it was really like inside Apollo 11.

Starring Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A brilliant film and an absolute must for the big screen. Our audience normally claps at the end of the film: this night there was a subdued and respectful silence and nobody moved from their seats until the final credits.

A good film enjoyed by most of the audience. You might want to consider subtitles (American accents against a noisy background) and you need to watch for an aspect ratio change towards the end of the film (the moon landing sequence) which raise the height of the projection by about 10-12 cms.

The film was immensely enjoyed by many in the audience. Some were seeing it for a second time. However, there were a few who thought it a little too long.
