The Flick: Flight
The Skinny: After directing a trio of animated features, Academy Award-winner Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump) returned to live-action with this 2012 dramatic thriller written by John Gatins (Coach Carter). The movie was nominated for two Academy Awards at the 85th Academy Awards: Best Actor (for Denzel Washington) and Best Original Screenplay (for John Gatins).
The Players: Academy Award-winner Denzel Washington gives a riveting performance as William "Whip" Whitaker, a hard-drinking pilot who accomplishes the seemingly impossible by successfully landing his airliner after a catastrophic systems control failure. Whitaker is faced with some hard choices after a National Transportation Safety Board toxicology screening reveals that he was drunk while piloting the plane. Melissa Leo, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, Kelly Reilly and John Goodman also star.
