Capt. Sullenberger with Flight 1549 First Officer Jeff Skiles at the NY “Sully” premiere – September 2016
My husband ordered a movie called “Sully” and we began to watch it. The next thing you know, I’m wiping tears away. My husband said, “Connie, it turned out okay.”
I was overcome with the compassion of the pilot and the co-pilot, Skiles, the Coast Guard, NYS Scuba Police and their helicopter pilot.
At one point in the film, they tried to give Captain “Sully” Sullenberger all the credit and he said, “No, it was everyone.”
He named those I mentioned above and the passengers and flight attendants as well.
Clint Eastwood directed this movie which got released in September of 2016, written by Todd Komarnicki, based on the autobiography Highest Duty authored by Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow. This information came from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sully_(film).
The film was produced by Village Roadshow Pictures, Flashlight Films, The Kennedy/Marshall Company and Malpaso Productions and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Tom Hanks plays Captain Sullenberger, Aaron Eckhart portrayed First Officer Jeff Skiles, and Laura Linney represented “Sully’s” wife.
If you want to watch a show based on a true story and see people taking risks to protect others, this is the film for you. I love seeing the good in mankind.
God isn’t mentioned in this movie, but the word “miraculous” comes up a time or two.
May God bless you.
