Denzel Washington soars in this gripping drama about a commercial airline pilot who averts a catastrophe and is hailed a hero—and then has to confront some personal demons on his own descent to the truth about who, and what, he really is. John Goodman, John Cheadle, Kelly Reilly and Melissa Leo help round out the strong supporting cast, but the spotlight truly belongs to Washington, who garnered Academy Award, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice award nominations for his powerhouse role. And that airplane crash scene—well, be prepared. Even though you know it’s only a movie, I guarantee your heart rate will go up as that plane is going down…down…down.
