Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Denzel Washington
Origin: United States
Pilot Whip Whitacker, after an all-nighter of booze, sex and drugs, boldly guides a crippled airliner to a crash landing. Although he is acclaimed as a hero, the legal, moral and ethical aspects of Whip’s behavior before and after the accident are much more ambiguous than initially meet the public eye. A study of addiction far more complex than the norm, Flight is a compelling drama anchored by a great performance from Denzel Washington.
I thought I'd missed this film, but it's on at Broadway for 2 days only in April. :-)
Meet for a drink beforehand in the Cafe Bar, the film starts at 4.45.
