As the credits roll, there is a reuniting scene with the passengers and crew. Another scene follows shortly with Sully's wife talking briefly about what has been going on at their home since the miraculous landing on the Hudson River. See more »
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
Impressive meet between the directorial art of Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks gift. Result - a powerful, convincing fresco. Remarkable for impeccable construction, for the entire architecture and for the lovely force of detail. And, sure, for its profound humanism. Because, after the final images, you understand - it is not the film of an American hero but it is a convincing pledge for fundamental values. That defines it . As one of the most beautiful reflection of the expectations of each from us.
