Mustaches loom large in Clint Eastwood’s “Sully.”
Large, because I saw it in IMAX where size matters.
This trivial observation, however, also speaks to a commitment to the literal that is peculiar to Eastwood’s films.
Since the pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who landed an Airbus jet in the Hudson River saving 155 “souls” and his co-pilot Jeff Skiles, both had cookie dusters in real life, so do Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart, the actors who play them.
It’s the sort ordinary detail, that like a scoop of vanilla, gives Eastwood’s storytelling a bland name.
