Jodie Foster is one of a handful of actors that I would watch reading the proverbial phone directory. Now 43, she's been at the acting game for 35 years. That's the length of most careers, and she's just getting started. Ms. Foster has the rare ability to act with her eyes, which is something that was handled with similar delicacy by Lillian Gish -- take a look at Broken Blossoms. Robert Schwentke on the other hand is relatively new to the business, but has the sense to trust his actors and take advantage of their abilities. Flightplan is a deceptively simple story about a young girl who apparently disappears while aboard a huge jumbo jet. Everything here is handled beautifully, and the viewer, along with Ms. Foster and the airliner's crew are never quite certain of the truth. Add in superb performances from Peter Sarsgaard and Sean Bean. This is a film that I feared might fall into the routine, and was pleasantly surprised that it went in totally the opposite direction. While image and audio look to be superb, this DVD was viewed on one of my smaller systems, as my theater is currently undergoing an update. I'll leave it to this site's reviewers to comment further in that regard should there be any negatives. I saw and heard none. Recommended.
