Flight - Robert Zemeckis [DVD]
Denzel Washington stars in this Academy Award-nominated drama as an airline pilot who finds himself in the line of fire. Faced with a catastrophic event whilst on a routine flight, Captain William Whitaker (Washington) averts a major disaster by performing a skilled emergency landing that saves the lives of everyone on board. Proclaimed a hero by a grateful public, Whitaker's world is unexpectedly thrown into turmoil in the days that follow, when the FAA investigation into the aircraft's crash leads the authorities to conclude that Whitaker had alcohol in his system during the flight. Now, faced with the prospect of a life sentence, and with a hungry media smelling blood, Whitaker finds himself forced to go on the offensive to fight for his future.
