In many ways a partner film to 'American Sniper', this is Clint's second film in a row to strip away the layers of a modern-day hero and get to the real guy underneath. The subject in ‘Sully’ is drastically different from ‘American Sniper’ – pilot Chesley Sullenberger saved hundreds of lives when he landed an airliner on New York’s Hudson river in 2009, and as far as we know he never shot anyone.
