Movie Review: 'Sully'

Parents need to know that "Sully" is a fact-based drama starring Tom Hanks as U.S. Airways Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the pilot of the 2009's "Miracle on the Hudson" emergency water landing. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the movie's themes include teamwork, compassion and courage. It also has some swearing ("s--t," "ass"), mostly said in tense circumstances, as well as one "f--king" in regards to the weather. Violence isn't graphic but does include frightening, tense scenes of the landing, with passengers screaming, panicking and more. There are also a couple of post-traumatic nightmares in which Sully envisions crashing into NYC buildings instead of safely in the Hudson (these disturbing scenes could remind some viewers of 9/11). A bar that names a drink after Sully has some over-served/drunk patrons.
