Add "Flight" to your very early list of possible Oscar contenders! A pilot (Denzel Washington) miraculously lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, he is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault. This movie closed out the 50th New York Film Festival on Oct. 14 to rave reviews.
"Flight," which opened nationwide on Nov. 2, marks director Robert Zemeckis' first foray into live-action filmmaking since "Cast Away" in 2000.
“Robert Zemeckis has shown his diversity as a storyteller in comedies, dramas and has skillfully translated narratives into special effect environments(Forest Gump, Back To The Future, Contact, What Lies Beneath) " Rose Kuo, executive director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, said in a statement. "It is a pleasure to see him bring to life this complicated, tragic-comic portrait of a man in crisis, with an exceptional and poignant performance by Denzel Washington.”
Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Bruce Greenwood and Melissa Leo also co-star in "Flight."
139 min, Rated "R" for drug and alcohol abuse, language, sexuality/nudity and an intense action sequence
