Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks are two of the most unfussy and reliable professionals working in the film industry today – so it’s a logical choice for them to team up to make a movie eulogising unfussy and reliable professionalism. A dramatisation of the 2009 ‘Miracle on the Hudson,’ when the pilot of the title managed to land his airliner in the river following an emergency, it might spend a little too much time laying into the pencil pushers behind desks as Sully goes through endless hearings on whether he was at fault. But there’s a lack of pretension as it pays tribute to a decent man’s extraordinary skill, making this the perfect film to see with your dad. Times & trailer
