Sully movie quotes provide the tense dialogue for the biographical drama film chronicling how Captain Chesley Sullenberger piloted US Airways Flight 1549 to an emergency landing on the Hudson River. Clint Eastwood directed the movie, which was adapted by Todd Komarnicki from the autobiography Highest Duty by Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow. Showing in IMAX, Sully opened in theaters on September 9, 2016.

In Sully, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) and First Officer Jeff Skiles (Aaron Exkhart) take off from LaGuardia Airport in New York City when moments after takeoff, they encounter a flock of geese that disables both of their engines. Captain Sullenberger radios back to the airport tower to request an emergency landing but soon realizes that the aircraft will not make it that far. He makes the bold choice to force a water landing in the Hudson River, one that resulted in all 155 people on board surviving.

In the wake of the water landing, Captain Sullenberger is bombarded by the media and interrogated by the NTSB (including Mike O'Malley and Anna Gunn), who tries to suggest that Sully made the wrong choice in the incident that was later dubbed the Miracle on the Hudson. This sudden attention takes a toll on Captain Sullenberger's life, his legacy and his family, including wife Lorraine (Laura Linney).
