Flight is a story about a pilot and his habits that he can’t control anymore – alcohol and substance abuse.
Captain Whip Whitaker is a pilot and he got a big problem when it comes to drinking and drugs. When he is about t board a plain and fly it, he comes on drunk and high. Tells his co-pilot to do most of the work and himself pass out. It was supposed to be a calm flight until something happens to the plain and Whitaker have to try to land it to get everyone to safety. But he doesn’t get everyone to safety, 4 people plus 2 in the crew passed in the landing. And now everyone wants answers. They want someone to blame. So the obvious is to blame the Captain.
His abuse spirals even further during the investigation. He have people around him who just want to help him to make sure he gets help. But he won’t have it. His drinking and substance abuse gets worse everyday. By the end, he knows he can’t run anymore.
It’s a powerful story. Got me emotional. Denzel Washington is amazing in this film. Anything he does, he does amazingly. I would recommend to see this, it’s a must see film.
You see actors like Denzel Washington, Nadine Velazquez, Tamara Tunie, Brian Geraghty, Kelly Reilly and many more.
