Clint Eastwood directs a riveting biographical drama, ‘Sully’, giving us insights into what led up to the miraculous landing of a civilian aircraft in the Hudson River in 2009.
Captain Sully, is played delicately by Tom Hanks, where he brings a responsible quality during a very challenging emergency. Aaron Eckhart plays his able co-pilot, who supports him during unprecedented circumstances.
The result? A gripping tale, well edited, told with dignity, building appropriate tension in its short running time. A clean, crisp film which doesn’t get melodramatic.
