The story of Chelsey, 'Sully' Sullenberger, the pilot who managed to successfully land a commercial passenger aircraft containing 155 passengers on the hudson river after both Jet engines simultaneously shut down while cruising at low altitude. Following the incident itself and the legal and media firestorm that came in its wake, this film details the personal struggles of captain Sullenberger and asks probing questions about heroism, duty and responsibility.
"It's an effectively thrilling story of quietly unassuming, can-do American heroism-the kind, sadly, we don't get to witness much these days." Entertainment Weekly
"This is Hanks' show, and he delivers a typically strong performance, quickly allowing us to forget that we're watching an actor."Variety
"Clint Eastwood's depiction of ''the miracle on the Hudson'' joins a nerve-wracking list of white-knuckle movies." The Age
