In the last meal before the Apollo 11 crew heads into space, Neil Armstrong is shown eating using the European style, with fork in left hand with the tines pointed down.

"First Man" is excellent on all accounts. A masterful film both dramatically and as a cinematic experience. It is easily a must see. And as for that flag controversy, could we all grow up? Yes, there is NO dedicated shot of the American flag being planted. There is merely a wide shot that shows both the lunar lander and the flag from a distance. The film doesn't rewrite history or try to be anti-American. The movie still goes out of its way to point out the event as an American achievement. Heck, it even had a French woman say something like "I knew America could do it, I had faith". If you choose to boycott this movie because of that one shot that wasn't in the movie...then that is honestly sad. And you if see it and then hate it for that reason, you completely missed the point of the film: Armstrong dealing with a personal family tragedy. In place of the flag planting, the film choose to focus on something more personal that many are lead to believe really happened. Honestly, I hope it did because it was beautiful. Much like the film itself. Go see it. Ignore the unwarranted hate. There are plenty of other movies that can be serve as the scapegoat of modern Hollywood bashing.
