Director: Clint Eastwood. Starring: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney. USA 2016. 96 mins.
It’s rare that you know the outcome of a film from the get-go but nonetheless remain riveted throughout, but that’s exactly what Clint Eastwood’s Sully provides. It tells the story of how Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger (Hanks) landed his airliner in Manhattan’s Hudson River in 2009 without loss of life, following a bird strike that disabled both of the plane’s engines. In the aftermath, even as the public and media heralded the heroics of the captain and his co-pilot Skiles (Eckhart), the pair faced an official investigation that accused them of endangering the lives of the 155 souls they actually saved. Using time jumps and Sullenberger’s imagined nightmare outcomes, Eastwood and writer Todd Komarnicki astutely recreate the events that happened and the disaster scenarios that were avoided.
