The Pi­o­neer’s Sons Give 2 Thumbs Up

Closer Weekly - - News Now -

CRIT­ICS ARE RAV­ING about First Man, the story of Neil Arm­strong (Ryan Gosling) and his his­toric trip to the moon. But the most im­por­tant re­views may have come from the as­tro­naut’s sons, Mark and Rick. “I’ve seen the movie four or five times now, and I’m still cry­ing,” Mark said af­ter a screen­ing at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val. “That re­ally speaks to how au­then­tic the movie is.” Adds Rick, “One thing the movie touches on that no­body re­ally talks about is how sup­port­ive the wives were of one an­other. That’s a very im­por­tant story.” Claire Foy plays Neil’s wife, Janet Arm­strong. Con­cludes Mark of his dad, who died in 2012, “I do think he’d be pleased.”

Ryan says play­ing Neil was “an in­cred­i­ble op­por­tu­nityand an enor­mous re­spon­si­bil­ity.”
