FIRST MAN
2018, Universal, 141 min, USA/Japan, Dir: Damien Chazelle

Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle reteams with LA LA LAND star Ryan Gosling for the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. Based on the book by James R. Hansen, this visceral and intimate account is told from Armstrong’s perspective, exploring the triumphs and the cost - to the astronaut, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself - of one of the most dangerous missions in history. With Claire Foy. "Damien Chazelle’s sweeping and intimate new film ... takes the conquest of difficulty as both theme and inspiration." - A.O. Scott, New York Times


SPOTLIGHT
2015, Open Road Films, 128 min, USA, Dir: Tom McCarthy

Among the most riveting profiles of investigative journalism since ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN, SPOTLIGHT focuses on the team of Boston Globe staffers who broke the news about the Catholic Church’s cover-up of pedophile priests in the city. Led by newly hired editor Michael Keaton, reporters Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams and Brian D’Arcy James methodically piece together a story bigger and more damning than any of them had imagined. “Superbly controlled and engrossingly detailed.” - Justin Chang, Variety.
