Sully is the story behind the miracle landing in the Hudson River and Captain Sullenberger who made the landing. Sully (played by Tom Hanks) and co-pilot Jeff Skiles (played by Aaron Eckhart) are under investigation for the landing; authorities try to determine if Flight 1549 could have returned to LaGuardia Airport. The investigation leads Sully to question if he was right to land in the Hudson, because the landing put many passenger’s lives at risk and may or may not have been necessary.
Sully is a great movie that puts the audience into the seats of Captain Sully and the passengers of Flight 1549 that’s pulse pounding and tension filled. It shows the emotional effect that the landing had on Captain Sully (who is unable to sleep and has nightmares from the trauma of the landing), his family, and the passengers of Flight 1549. Sully contains numerous outstanding performances from it’s actors, and characters that will pull at your heartstrings.
