First Man, the movie based on James Hansen's biography of Neil Armstrong, is set to be released in October.

The director is Damien Chazelle, a Rhode Island native whose father is Bernard Chazelle, a French-American computer scientist, currently the Eugene Higgins Professor of Computer Science at Princeton University. Three years ago Damien Chazelle directed La La Land, which I did not see (or rather refused to), so his choice to film First Man is a bit incongruous to say the least. Anyway, the cooperation with leading actor Ryan Gosling in that movie must have been good since Gosling portrays Armstrong in this new project. Looking forward to it. May it bring back a sense of wonder and lust for endeavour in our youths.
