In this interview conduced for the Herald, I speak to Ryan Gosling and director Damien Chazelle about their phenomenal new film about Neil Armstrong and the first moon landing.
As the first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong is a towering figure in human history. Yet he has always been something of an enigma. All the way until his death in 2012, he maintained a privacy and humility that belied his worldwide fame.
The new film, First Man, seeks to unravel that mystery, and is already generating such enormously positive buzz it’s sitting firmly at the front of this year’s Oscar contenders.
