In an eye-opening and deeply moving account of the miracle on the Hudson, Tom Hanks plays real life hero Captain Chelsey Sully Sullenberger, the pilot forced to make an emergency landing in New Yorks Hudson river after his plane carrying 155 passengers hit a flock of geese.
Having been labelled as a national hero, Sully found himself at the centre of an investigation which threatened to destroy his reputation and his career. This is Eastwood and Hanks at the top of their game.
A disarmingly delicate conception of heroics, which might be Eastwoods best work since Million Dollar Baby
