I wouldn’t usually go in for this kind of…

First Man (2018)

There are few things that capture your imagination as a child quite like the thought of a man landing on the moon. With missions to Mars and even further space exploration just over the horizon, it is strange to think that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on that white circle in the sky…
