The Aviator

One of the 20th century's most compelling figures, Howard Hughes was a wily industrialist, glamorous movie producer and unstoppable American innovator - but he thought of himself first and foremost as an aviator. In this spectacular epic, director Martin Scorsese focuses on the most prolific period in the life of Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio), the mid-1920s through the 1940s. It was a time of brilliant aeronautical invention, turbulent love affairs (including one with Katharine Hepburn, played by Cate Blanchett) and savage corporate battles. Scorsese's exhilarating biography of the billionaire, genius, madman co-stars Kate Beckinsale, John C Reilly, Alec Baldwin, Alan Alda and Jude Law as Errol Flynn.
