Harrold Film Nights – What’s On

 

Friday March 22nd

 

First Man (12A) 114min.

 

The riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight.  A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, the film explores the triumphs and the cost – on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself – of one of the most dangerous missions in history.  Directed by Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling.

 


 

“Ryan Gosling plays Neil Armstrong as a hero of relatively few words but Claire Foy provides the emotional heft (and the Oscar buzz) as the steadfast spouse of the lunar legend.”  Radio Times

 

 “This is at once cracking, deep-cutting, free-flowing in a defined range, fast and compelling.”  Eye for Film
