LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ryan Gosling says that one of the biggest challenges of making the Neil Armstrong film "First Man" was knowing the late astronaut's sons were going to see it.

The film from director Damien Chazelle pulls the curtain back on the enigmatic astronaut, who shied away from press and public life after walking on the moon.

Neil Armstrong's sons Rick and Mark Armstrong were involved in the production at every step helping to shed light on their father.

Gosling says their involvement was "invaluable" and that although it was difficult to find personal details about Armstrong, he respected the astronaut's ability to keep the focus on the mission and the hundreds of thousands of people who made it possible.

"First Man" is now playing in theaters nationwide.
