Sully: Miracle on the Hudson

Yesterday, Dad and I watched this great film from 2016 based on a true life story on Prime.

Nothing to do with Monster’s University, this film, directed by Clint Eastwood, is the story of Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger (played by Tom Hanks), an American pilot who became a hero after landing his damaged plane on the Hudson River in order to save the flight’s 155 passengers and crew.

At 1h 36 it’s a good length and pace, and despite the challenge and scrutiny Sully faces, it has a real feel good ending. I loved the plane scenes, and simulations, and resilience he and his co-pilot (Aaron Eckhart) demonstrated throughout the landing, and afterwards. I highly recommend. 9/10.

Have you seen this film? Can you recommend any other good ones?
