Just after exiting the LEM, Armstrong looks toward Earth. It appears as a crescent because it is side-lit, as is the lunar landscape in the foreground. But the reverse angle (of Armstrong's mirrored visor) shows the LEM shadow pointing toward Earth. This means that Earth should be fully illuminated and circular. See more »

The attempt to make it all feel dated and real worked well. There were no glossy space scenes. Add some interesting sounds and a lot of shakes can and the overal scene approach works.
But then there is the story. We all know what happens. So it was just about the angle they approached it at. Unfortunately they picked the boring angle.
The struggle with grieving was irritating. The lack of substance in the characters was disappointing. The frame was non existent. The length too long. The outcome underwhelming. The ending an anti climatic relief.
I will remember this film for the dirty toilets, great acting and my repeated checking of my watch. If you want to learn a tiny bit then watch it. But it is sadly no masterpiece. Let down but the story telling...
Recommend? Yes. On a Sunday...
