I usually eschew discussing politics on this blog, but this is a break from tradition since this news story is well and truly hot in the U.S. right now. It has become somewhat of a national soap opera.
After the action thriller 'Safe House' in early spring, we get another Denzel Washington flick in 'Flight.' This a mystery drama with Denzel starring as the alcoholic pilot Captain William Whitaker.
The plot by John Gatins really sets the stage for a blockbuster and has the audience at the edge of their seats at times. There is that right mix of comedy, emotion, romance and action that ensures that the film will be one of those Denzel classics like 'Training Day' or 'Remember the Titans.'
Flight feels so real and people with a fear-of-flying are bound to get even more terrified after watching the crash scene. I obviously will not spoil the fun for you by revealing too much here. I only wanted to highlight something that is truly 'hot in the U.S.'
