The movie "Flight" was just what I needed to take my mind off the presidential election.
That is not to say that this was light entertainment.
It was fiercely intense, sometimes dark, incredibly suspenseful and Denzel Washington turns in another outstanding performance.
I won't give anything away for those who haven't seen it. But, it's about realizing when your life has become unmanageable.
Don Cheadle and Kelly Reilly also turn in powerful performances. Oh, and John Goodman is - well, he's John Goodman - hilarious.
It's about 2 hours and 15 minutes, so a little longer than most movies, but the time flies by and you don't even realize how long you've been in the theater.
In fact, I plan to see it a second time.
It's a winner.
