Flight is a movie about addicts, pushers, and enablers.

It's not so much a movie about conquering inner demons as it is a movie about making them part of the everyday routine.

Also, there's a plane crash.

Whip Whitaker (2012 Oscar nominee Denzel Washington) is an airline pilot with a penchant for hard-drinking, drug binges, and casual sex. It becomes readily apparent that flying planes while under the influence - while it may be front-page news when discovered in the real world - is just an average Friday morning for Whip.

In the midst of a short flight from Orlando to Atlanta, his plane malfunctions and Whip pulls off a landing that can only be described as miraculous. As the investigation into the crash goes deeper, it becomes obvious that Whip was intoxicated at the time, and this portion of the plot unfurls much as you might expect, based on the film's trailer and marketing. »
