Rated PG-13; 123 minutes 

On Thursday, January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when Captain Chesley Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, while Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, other forces launched an investigation that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

"Taut and vivid." --Hollywood Reporter

"The movie is more than worth seeing." --Village Voice

"Sully is a classy, enormously satisfying ode to simple competence." --Washington Post

"At once a true-life drama about heroism and people working in harmony under exceptional conditions." --Philadelphia Inquirer

Robert Bly (1926-), was born in Minnesota to a family of Norwegian ancestry. As a poet, editor, and translator, Bly has had a profound impact on the shape of American poetry. Bly is a genius of the elevated ‘high’ style, in the European tradition of Rilke and Yeats, the lush magical realism of the Spanish poets like Lorca and Neruda. Yet Bly’s work is truly American, taking its atmosphere of wide empty space from the Midwest, and its unabashed straightforward emotionalism and spiritualism. This discussion will focus on his major poems and translation work.
