     “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” the famous words of Astronaut Neil Armstrong proudly restated by Ryan Gosling in the film First Man. Directed by Damien Chazelle, First Man brings back history from 50 years ago to tell the story.

     The film’s plot includes NASA’s project of getting a man to walking on the moon, while also telling the story of Neil Armstrong played by Ryan Gosling.

      The acting was good, especially Claire Foy, who played Janet Armstrong, Neil’s wife. Being British, she was able to put away her accent and play the role an emotionally distraught Janet Armstrong. Foy was able to pull off the anger and sadness Janet felt, due to Neil’s journeys, throughout the movie. Gosling was spot-on with all the emotions portrayed throughout the film, from grief to frustration to confidence.

      The film overall was good and well-worth seeing. It brought a roller coaster of emotions to the audience and even had some humor in parts of the scenes. But, there were parts of the movie where the camera moves up and down too much (the scenes where the rockets roll out of control) and the transitioning could’ve been better.

     Overall, First Man is worth seeing, and you don’t have to be a fan of science and history to like it. The film did a good job of retelling the life of the most famous astronauts.
