When a U.S. Airways pilot landed a damaged plane in the Hudson River in the middle of winter, saving all 155 people on board, he was immediately hailed a hero – but even heroes can be crumbling on the inside.Following the landing, Sully (Tom Hanks) and his co-pilot Jeff Skiles (Aaron Eckhart) faced a lengthy National Transportation Safety Board investigation, which tried to determine whether Sully and Skiles had made an error and, thus, put both their long-standing reputations at risk. The film spotlights the posttraumatic stress disorder that Sully faces as the world around him hails him as a hero. Eckhart said Eastwood, a famed actor and Academy Award-winning director, brought a level of experience to the film that echoed both Sully's experience as a pilot and Hanks' experience as an actor – a tale of a hero told by seasoned veterans in the industry.
