Blewbury Film is pleased to announce that our screening for the 9th August will be “Sully”.
Clint Eastwood’s film tells the story about Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, the heroic pilot who landed his passenger jet on New York’s Hudson River two minutes after both engines failed moments after take-off. This is Clint Eastwood’s 35th Film – not bad for an 86 year old cowboy – and shows that he has not lost his talent for drama, action and absorbing cinematic fluency.
Tom Hanks, in another splendid lead role performance, plays Sully, the stoic pilot faced with a tough job – both during and after the infamous crash landing. To Eastwood, Sully is one of those heroes who keep their narrowed eyes trained on the horizon and who are somehow simultaneously unassuming and completely authoritative. Eastwood has cast and directed Hanks perfectly in the role. Tom Hanks even seems to give his own crow’s feet a little extra “Eastwoodian” crinkle.
This is a film best watched with your feet firmly planted on terra firma but shows the human experience behind this fateful flight as faced by passengers, crew and onlookers in a breathtakingly realistic and plausible way.
Telegraph –“Sully, the superb drama suits Hanks and Eastwood down to the ground”
Directed by Clint Eastwood Starring: Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney.
