Tom Hanks stars as a modern American hero in this riveting true life drama.
On 15 January 2009, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger became a national hero when the world witnessed him pilot his disabled plane onto the waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being championed for his bravery and skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy both his reputation and his career.
Tom Hanks stars as Captain Sullenberger in this amazing true-life story directed by the great Clint Eastwood. Many are calling this Hanks’ finest role to date, with talk of an Oscar nomination. "This is Hanks’ show, and he delivers a typically strong performance, quickly allowing us to forget that we’re watching an actor,” says Variety magazine, with The Hollywood Reporter calling the movie "a vigorous and involving salute to professionalism and being good at your job".
