On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger (Hanks) glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Certified Fresh85%
Critics Consensus: As comfortingly workmanlike as its protagonist, Sully makes solid use of typically superlative work from its star and director to deliver a quietly stirring tribute to an everyday hero.

Great performances in tense, quietly powerful true story.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Sully is a fact-based drama starring Tom Hanks as U.S. Airways Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the pilot of the 2009's "Miracle on the Hudson" emergency water landing. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the movie's themes include teamwork, compassion, and courage. It also has some swearing ("s--t," "ass"), mostly said in tense circumstances, as well as one "f--king" in regards to the weather. Violence isn't graphic but does include frightening, tense scenes of the landing, with passengers screaming, panicking, and more. There are also a couple of post-traumatic nightmares in which Sully envisions crashing into NYC buildings instead of safely in the Hudson (these disturbing scenes could remind some viewers of 9/11). A bar that names a drink after Sully has some over-served/drunk patrons.
