Kyle Pratt is already distraught over the death of her husband when she faces every mother’s worst nightmare. She wakes from a brief nap and her daughter is gone. How could someone lose a child while flying at 37,000 feet from Berlin to New York? This is the dilemma of those on board as well as those watching in the theater. As a suspense thriller, this one is right on the mark. Between the creative camera work and the background music I was on the edge of my seat until the credits rolled. Although the violence in this film is mild, it is definitely an intense film. Add to that the uneasiness surrounding the air industry since 911 and you’ll find this movie can really trigger some strong emotions.
Jodie Foster has a history of making psychological thrillers, and I can see why. Foster is a master at conveying emotion using facial expressions to quickly draw the viewer in, making us feel what she does.
Because of the strong language (see content chart) this film cannot be approved by Dove.
