Description

On today’s episode, host Tom Breen and New Haven Independent reporter Allan Appel talk about two new movies with opposing, yet related, conceptions of American heroism. Clint Eastwood’s SULLY and Antoine Fuqua’s THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN are both fascinated with stubborn, courageous American men who are masters of their craft and confident in their expertise, no matter how much skepticism or vitriol they must endure for the sometimes unorthodox nature of their practice.
