The Moral of the Denzel Washington movie ‘Flight’ in 2 Sentences
I saw "Flight" over the weekend. It was very good and Denzel Washington definitely deserves an Oscar nomination. But the movie is not really what the trailers lead you to believe.
I can summarize the moral of the story for you in just two sentences. Don't worry, I won't spoil anything that you don't find out in the first five minutes anyway.
OK. Here is the moral of the movie
Alcohol is a terrible, debilitating substance that will ruin your life. Cocaine, on the other hand makes you AWESOME!!!
I don't want to say much more because it really is a good movie and Denzel is superb in it. But there are three separate points in the movie where the curative and awesomeness-creating power of cocaine are referenced. These are not brief throwaways either. They are central plot elements!
Also, if you go see "Flight", notice how many times the audience cheers at completely the wrong times!
