25 July 2012 | by corrosion-2See all my reviews

Frankie (Helen McCrory) is a middle aged single woman holding a sensitive position in the air defense industry. She also lectures on aerospace. When she starts an affair with one of her students, a young Arab, suspicions abound by all around her, specially her father (a nice cameo by Kenneth Cranham). The weight of suspicion around her makes her doubt the young boy's true intentions too.

Flying Blind is both a neat sexual thriller and also a statement on the post 9/11 prejudices , specially in western countries towards Arabs and Muslims. It is a confident debut for Polish director Katarzyna Klimkiewicz who had only made short films before. Well worth catching.
