Sully, directed by Clint Eastwood, has the unenviable task of adapting events that everyone is already familiar with. Most viewers will have already seen footage of a plane sitting in the middle of the Hudson River. The story was over before anyone even knew it had happened. But Eastwood and writer Todd Komarnicki wisely switch their focus to the often ridiculous investigation that hounded the pilots responsible for the miraculous landing. Instead of idle hero worship, Sully becomes a much more interesting film, one seething with fury at bureaucracies that seek to cut a hero down to size.
