Based on a true story, Drama
In January 2009, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger became a hero around the world when he successfully landed a damaged passenger plane seemingly headed towards tragedy on the middle of New York’s icy Hudson River. Miraculously, everybody survived. Feted by the public and the media, behind the scenes Sully and his co-pilot Jeff Skiles were the subjects of robust internal investigations into their actions by a committee convinced the plane could have been simply returned to the airport. Alongside this stress – and dealing with the onslaught of public attention – Sully is also suffering from PTSD, repeatedly flashing back to events leading up to the crash and wondering what, if anything, he could have done differently.
