Flight, starring Denzel Washington
Between work, planning for Thanksgiving, and other stuff, I haven't had much time to visit my favorite blogs or post much. I think that just happens this time of year to some of us. We did manage to make time for a FANTASTIC movie yesterday though. Have you seen it?
Denzel Washington has always been a favorite actor of mine, and after seeing him in Flight, I definitely think his performance was "award worthy". In a nutshell, Washington, stars as pilot Whip Whitaker who miraculously lands a malfunctioning plane, saving almost everyone on board. He's immediately seen as a hero, that is until his problems with alcohol and drugs soon surface. He's in denial like many addicts, and his addiction could lead to prison time for him.
Actor, John Goodman plays he whacky drug supplier --some really hilarious scenes there.
Every minute of this movie was a thrill, but the "flight" scene made me grip my husband throughout and I felt thankful I didn't have to get on a plane this morning. There is a lot of nudity, swearing and also drug use which some parents with young children and preteens at the theater obviously had not been aware of, but it is a great movie. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
