(15, 138 mins) Drama/Romance/Action. Denzel Washington, Kelly Reilly, John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Brian Geraghty, Tamara Tunie, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo, Nadine Velazquez. Director: Robert Zemeckis.
Denzel Washington soars to career highs in Robert Zemeckis’s emotionally wrought character study of an airplane pilot wrestling with alcohol dependency.
Underpinned by John Gatins’s intelligent script, Flight is a provocative drama that refuses to cast judgment on the central character as he repeats past mistakes and attempts to dodge the repercussions of his reckless actions.
