Drama: Following the emergency landing of a passenger jet in the Hudson River right after takeoff, a pilot must contend with the aftermath of that event, including news coverage, emotional duress, and NTSB investigations that indicate he might have made the wrong choice.
It's January 15, 2009, and pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (TOM HANKS) and co-pilot Jeff Skiles (AARON ECKHART) have lifted off in US Airways Flight 1549 from LaGuardia Airport, headed for Charlotte. Just minutes into the flight, however, a flock of Canada geese strikes the Airbus A320, causing dual engine failure. Realizing they probably can't make it back to LaGuardia, Sully decides to ditch the plane into the icy Hudson River. Miraculously, everyone aboard the flight is rescued and survives, and while Sully's wife back home, Lorraine (LAURA LINNEY), worries about him, he and Jeff find their actions scrutinized by the NTSB.

All of which makes Sully, who then suffers from some related PTSD, start to second guess his actions, what with black box readouts and computer simulations indicating the river landing wasn't needed. With an NTSB hearing scheduled in New York casting doubt on what transpired, Sully replays the incident in his head, all while hoping evidence and other findings vindicate him and his decisions and actions.

They might if they're interested in the real story or are fans of Hanks or anyone else in the film.
For some peril and brief strong language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
