Very good movie, Tom Hanks did a great job again, this time with Clint Eastwood directing. It's an unusual take on a historical event, focusing more on the aftermath and his response than the actual event itself.

    That's on our list to see.

    Was it free of political correctness and blatant slants and slams against conservatism (unrelated to plot or character development) that are so often needlessly inserted in Hollywood films these days?

    I assume so given it was directed by Clint Eastwood.

    I finally saw it and it was very well done from what I know about the incident itself and how NTSB investigations typically go. He is speaking at a venue near me next month and I plan to go.

    Yes, it was. If anything, it paints the NTSB in a less-than-nice light.
