"Great movie- great man"
5 stars"

There have been several movies about legendary American billionaire Howard Hughes- most notably “The Amazing Howard Hughes” with Tommy Lee Jones and “Howard and Melvin” with Jason Robards but as good as these are The Aviator stands as the most accurate and enthralling. Leonardo DiCaprio is fantastic as Hughes- no easy task as he is required to play the character as he makes the transition from high flying adventurer and Hollywood producer to mentally unstable recluse. Cate Blanchett is remarkable as Katherine Hepburn and the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale plays headstrong Ava Gardner. As an introduction to the life of Howard Hughes you can't ask for better than The Aviator. As an adventure film with spectacular flying sequences, courtroom drama, humour and a tragic, compelling story it is every bit as successful. The bonus features are excellent on the 2 disc version with loads of historical information, cast interviews and some great features on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Description

The Aviator tells the story of the emotional life of aviation pioneer, Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio) between the late 1920s to the 1940s.

During this time, he turned a small fortune into a massive one, was test flying innovative aircraft that he had designed, directing or producing movies like The Outlaw and Hell’s Angels, buying control of RKO Pictures and having love affairs with such Hollywood legends as Katharine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett) and Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale).

The film also recounts his increasingly erratic, obsessive-compulsive behaviour that eventually leads him to isolate himself from the world.

Best Picture Golden Globe Winner 2004.
Best Picture BAFTA Winner 2005.
