Flight (2012) Rated R

flightA pilot saves almost all his passengers when his plane malfunctions. During the investigation of the accident it is discovered that the pilot was drunk. Starring Nadine Velazquez, Denzel Washington, Carter Cabassa.

This film is a great character study played by the masterful Denzel Washington, as an alcoholic, drug-addicted pilot whose very addiction may be the means by which he saved the passengers on his plane, but not without its consequences.  As the effects of the accident and ensuing trial proceed, we see his character fall into a disturbing tailspin of events.  Compelling and thought-provoking, this movie is worth a watch.
