Your dad is going to love this movie.
‘Sully’ has everything it needs to be a hit movie, and smells of Oscar bait. 1) It stars Tom Hanks. 2) He’s a Captain 3) It’s directed by Clint Eastwood. 4) It has the incredible true story of Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the man who glided his dying plane into the Hudson river, saving all 155 passengers aboard.
The crash happened on January 15, 2009, and I’m sure we all remember the incredible images and video of people escaping the jet in the Hudson. What I, and I’m assuming many others, didn’t know, is that Captain Sully was investigated after the crash. Statistics came out that he could have landed the plane, and the Captain had to look back to that day and ask himself if he did the right thing.
Sully releases on September 9, 2016.
