This for me was one of The movies of 2018 and I say that as an ardent Marvel and Queen fan!! This is a movie about the man who first landed on the Moon, the landing of the Moon and all that goes with it is, in a way, incidental to the main story. Neil Armstrong was a very private man and the weight of heroic fame did not sit well with him. Although certain liberties were taken for dramatic effect, according to Mark and Eric Armstrong, Neil’s sons, the main story line is an honest reflection of the man. It is a beautiful depiction showing the ordinary humanity behind a famous persona. A must watch!
