Ryan Gosling defends film about moon landing amid American flag controversy
LOS ANGELES -- Ryan Gosling is defending his new Neil Armstrong biopic against pre-release criticism it has garnered over a decision by director Damien Chazelle to omit from the film the iconic placing of the American flag on the moon. Gosling said it was his view that Armstrong's moon walk, "transcended countries and borders," according to quotes featured in U.K.'s Telegraph, reportedly from a press conference at the Venice Film Festival.
