Biography Drama


The story of airline captain Chesley Sullenberger, a long-serving pilot forced to make an emergency landing into the Hudson river.

Part recreation, part examination into post-traumatic stress, "Sully" is a tense and emotional retelling of an extraordinary true event. While the famous crash-landing is shown in its spectacular matter-of-fact entirety, key moments are cleverly littered across the film in the form of startling flashbacks and unnerving court procedure. It explores the impact of this life-changing moment, as Sully is forced to face intense media scrutiny and his own nightmares in a world of fierce scrutiny. The story defies belief, and this rendition will show you exactly why. A genuine hero.
