Aaron Roman (Gores) is a teenager with cerebral palsy who dreams of starring in a big-time action movie. When his father (Mantegna) grants Aaron his wish for his 18th birthday, he experiences the reality a bit hard to manage.
Two strangers' lives become inextricably bound together after a devastating plane crash. Inspired by actual events, AFTERMATH tells a story of guilt and revenge after an air traffic controller's (Scoot McNairy) error causes the death of a construction foreman's (Arnold Schwarzenegger) wife and daughter.
The movie is based on the "Überlingen mid-air collision" which happened on July 1st, 2002. See more »
In the United States, the transition altitude is 18,000 ft. Flight levels, which are approximated altitudes based on standard air pressure, are only used above the transition altitude, as it simplifies operations at high altitude. However, under 18,000 ft, the actual altitude as read using the correct local air pressure is used instead, and expressed in feet, not flight levels. Therefore, an air controller would not ask an aircraft to descend to flight level 65, but rather ask to descend to 6500 ft. Correction: This statement is true for the United States, but not every country uses 18,000 ft as the transition altitude. Germany for example uses 5000 ft, and in Switzerland it's 7000 ft. So, issuing a clearance to FL 065 is correct depending on the country. This accident happened over Germany. See more »
Maybe I should spend less time at the cemetery. The only thing is that Nadiya and Olena are there. They can't leave. So I go there and visit them, because... they can't go anywhere. They can't...

My take away from this film wasn't so much the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger, (whom I simply admire as one of Hollywood's best) but how does one deal with and guilt and grief. From the viewpoint of the Air traffic controller, I totally understood his guilt, blaming himself for the mid-air collision and carrying such a heavy load of lost life on his conscious. I don't know about anyone else but whenever I turn on the news and hear of hit and run drivers, who may have taken a life and didn't stop at the scene of the incident to see who they hit I always ask God to give them a burden of guilt and shame that they turn their-selves in. This ATC bore his guilt but tried to restart his life, although I didn't think it was his entirely his fault, but the burden of guilt took its tool on him and his family. The grief of a lost loved one can also be heavy on ones heart, that you can never know how a person will handle such pain. Did I condone what Arnold did to the ATC? Hell no, but I understood his pain, because all he wanted was an a apology from the airline. Overall a thought provoking conversation film, you know the kind you have after you leave the theater. Not a film for everyone, but a definitely a conversation piece.
