Bio-drama directed and co-produced by Clint Eastwood which is based on the true story of Captain “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) who on January 15, 2009, glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.
