I stumbled upon this a few days ago and saved it - interesting read about the movie and the facts. They stuck pretty close to the actual event.

That's a great link, thanks Cheryl.
The movie next week will be all the sweeter after enjoying your little guy.

"Cafe Society"

We went to see the new Woody Allan film last night. Not sure how good it was in the general scheme of things but I enjoyed it. Set in the mid to late 1930s and very much in that genre. Great musical score but a very odd end.

One novel thing for a 21st century film - whilst there were references to character X having an affaire with character Y, there was no nudity or rolling about in sweaty sheets. (I always think the actor/esses who are lumbered with those sort of scenes never quite avoid looking uncomfortable/embarrassed.)

One good thing - although many famous film names were dropped none of the owners actually appeared, so no complaints about the performance of modern actors and actresses trying to pull off great and not so great "Stars" of the past.

Saw the trailer for this last night at the cinema. I can remember the press coverage of the accident when it happened. Thought it was an amazing feat.

Doesn't Tom Hanks look old!

Make-up, most likely. Didn't they do a great job? He was just on some late night talk show and looked his wonderful self and not-so-old.

You're welcome, Kay and Roadfix. I thought it was a pretty good article, too.

Yes, they did a good job of 'aging' Tom Hanks.

I went to see Sully at the matinee today. WOW, what a great film! Kayelle hit the nail on the head - it was an edge of the seater, and Tom Hanks was brilliant in it. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and highly recommend it.

One of the things that stood out to me was the Air Traffic Controllers - we all know what a stressful position that is, and I'm glad they included that part of it in the movie. I couldn't imagine being responsible for seeing that the airspace is safe for routine take offs and landings, let alone something like this happening.

There were more people in the theater than I've seen in a long time - probably 20 or so. But then again it was Sunday, and I usually go to the weekday matinees.
