Just watched Sully, about the USAir captain who saved 155 lives by landing his plane in the Hudson on Jan 15, 2009 after birds disabled both engines.
i had thought, how are they going to make this dramatic when everybody knows going in what the outline of what happened, and that it had a happy ending.
But wow, what a great thing they did.
Instead of focusing on the event itself, they focused on the inquest after the event, when the NTSB was trying to determine if he had done the right thing. Then, with flashbacks to the event, they went through the story. Very well done. Hard to realize that was almost EIGHT years ago.
