Telluride 2016: 'Sully' Review

In its own modest way, Sully is the best thing Clint Eastwood has made in a while. Forced to choose, I'd say it's his strongest since Letters From Iwo Jima, and the two films have certain similarities, both depicting the horror of actual events with a movingly subdued approach. This story of Sully Sullenberger has its creaky, awkward moments, but it earns its sentimentality. And Tom Hanks is great. I reviewed the film for Screen International.
