Flying Lessons 2010
20 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think this film will change the way we see how people deal with Alzeimer's Disease. Hal Holbrook plays his role in this film brilliantly! "Flying Lessons", deserves the very best of what it can get and receive. When I first saw it at it's premiere for it's release the next day. I just thought, Wow this really touches your heart in every way. But Hal, just lifts the film to it's edge, that no other actor I believe can do. He was made to act in "Flying Lessons". I hope this film makes it to the Oscars and get's what it deserves. Every actor in the film did an amazing job! "Flying Lessons", deserves to get released worldwide!

Sincerely, my very best regards David Goulard
