Welcome to Episode 53 of We Watched A Thing.

This week we're heading to space, being incredibly emotionally distant and not planting any flags, all while discussing the brand new Neil Armstrong biopic 'First Man'.

First Man is a 2018 American biographical drama film directed by Damien Chazelle and written by Josh Singer. Based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen, the film stars Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, alongside Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, CiarĂ¡n Hinds, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit, and Lukas Haas, and follows the years leading up to the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in 1969.
