Does Sandra Bullock die in “Gravity”?

Q. Does Sandra Bullock’s character die in the movie Gravity?

Adam answers:


Bullock’s character, Dr. Ryan Stone, survives the various dangers when things go terribly wrong in space, and she makes it back to Earth.

Some people have interpreted certain scenes in the movie, particularly the impossible return of George Clooney’s character, Matt Kowalski, to mean that she had died. The rest of the movie would then be her experience after death. But Gravity’s director and co-writer, Alfonso CuarĂ³n, has said in interviews that she survives (though he’s fine with you interpreting otherwise).
