"Sully" is the 2016 film, staring Tom Hanks, Aaron Ekhart and Laura Linney and is the true story of Capt. "Sully" Sullenberger who safely landed a distressed plane loaded with passengers on the Hudson River in the middle of a frigid winter day, with no casualties. The press labeled it "Miracle On The Hudson" but the FAA decided to question Capt. Sullenberger's decisions. Therein lies the drama, as directed by Clint Eastwood. Tom Hanks' performance is one of the finest of his career and this deeply moving film is one of the best of 2016. It is truly a profile in courage.
