PG-13 | | Biography, Drama
The story of Chesley Sullenberger, an American pilot who became a hero after landing his damaged plane on the Hudson River in order to save the flight's passengers and crew.
At 96 minutes, this is the shortest film Clint Eastwood has directed.
Doreen Welsh, Sheila Dail:
Brace brace brace! Heads down! Stay down!
For the first simulated landing at LaGuardia, the plane approaches from the southwest, landing on runway 4, which is the most direct route back to the airport and the only one that makes sense. But for the second simulation (with the 35 second delay), the craft approaches from the northeast, attempting to land on runway 22--the same runway, but in the opposite direction. This makes no sense, because they would have had to fly past the airport, turn around and then come back.
As the credits roll, there is a reuniting scene with the passengers and crew. Another scene follows shortly with Sully's wife talking briefly about what has been going on at their home since the miraculous landing on the Hudson River.
