Inspiration: Chesley Sullenberger


American pilot Chesley Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) becomes a national hero when the plane he was flying was disabled after striking a flock of geese.

Shortly after taking off from New York's LaGuardia Airport, both engines were disabled and he quickly determined that landing in the Hudson River was his only option. He successfully glided the plane to a water landing, saving all of the 155 passengers and crew members on board.

Directed by Clint Eastwood, Sully tells the story of how an ordinary American, whose work day began in a seemingly normal way, rose to the status of hero with unbridled courage and expertise in the face of panic and danger.

  • 5 stars "very good, Tom Hanks's pick never went wrong"
  • 4 stars "good movie"
  • 5 stars "Outstanding! Superb acting, directing, authentic, inspirational, and kept me on edge the whole time. A few years ago I met someone from Sully's home town. He mentioned that Sully was a beloved, humble man whom his whole town revered. Hanks played the part of this brilliant, humble hero well."
