Aufbruch zum Mond
USA, 2018 | Length: 142min | FSK: 12 | Director: Damien Chazelle Cast: Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Jason Clarke

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash »La La Land«, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for the riveting story of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong (Gosling) and the 1960s. A visceral, first-person account, based on the biography by James R. Hansen, the movie explores the sacrifices and the cost on Armstrong and on the nation of one of the most dangerous missions in history. This captivating and suspenseful thriller, which is given a powerful whoosh of added poignancy by the story of Armstrong's family life, is an immersive, immaculately crafted, technically marvelous, often spectacular and satisfyingly old-fashioned epic that keeps you white-knuckled about the outcome of one of the most well-documented days in human history.

Er gehört zu den größten Helden des 20. Jahrhunderts: Neil Armstrong, der erste Mensch auf dem Mond. Der Film mit Ryan Gosling in der Hauptrolle erzählt aus Armstrongs Leben und von den enormen Konflikten, mit denen er vor und während seiner legendären Mission konfrontiert war.
