From Academy Award winning producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, 8 Mile, Ransom) Flightplan stars Jodie Foster (Panic Room, Silence Of The Lambs), Peter Sarsgaard (Kinsey, Garden State and Shattered Glass), Sean Bean (The Lord Of The Rings, National Treasure), Erika Christensen (Traffic) and Australian actress Kate Behan (Chopper, Matrix Revolutions). Jodie Foster is Kyle Pratt, an aircraft designer who with her young daughter is returning to the US from Berlin to bury her late husband. On waking from a much-needed nap, Kyle realises to her horror that six-year-old Julia is missing. Initially thinking Julie may have wandered off, she enlists the help of the in-flight staff, the sympathetic Fiona, (Erika Christensen) a rookie on only her second international flight and the suspicious more senior Stephanie (Kate Beahan). Mild panic turns to full-scale hysteria when after an exhaustive search Julia is nowhere to be found. When it emerges that Julia was never even registered as a passenger on the flight and no one on board can confirm that they had seen her, the passengers are left wondering if this is all a figment of Kyle's strained state of mind. While Airline Captain Rich (Sean Bean) and Air Marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard), in charge of safety, don't want to doubt Kyle's insistent claim that her daughter has vanished, all evidence points to the fact that Julie was never on board. As paranoia and doubt mount among the passengers, Kyles credibility and sanity are called to question and she is drawn into a complex web of mystery, treachery and perceived conspiracy that take her to the very depth of maternal tenacity. Flightplan mixes human emotions and ethical dilemmas in the enclosed realm of an aeroplane where, in today's world, isolation, fright, and suspicion are already heightened to the max. Although the story was developed before 9/11, Flightplan reflects the new era of travel, one that's filled with uncertainty and the themes of paranoia and shifting perception of foreigners come even more to the fore than originally intended.

The supporting cast are excellent but Foster delivers the central rôle with entire believability and her frustration is emotionally brilliant proving once again she is an actor of remarkable talent.
Even if you’ve seen it before, one is never quite prepared for the denouement.....
There are a few extras on the disc but to be honest, I’m not really into looking through the extras unless there is something that sounds really interested (see Momento, the whole film is played backwards, however there is an extra to watch it the right way around, which makes for a good film in its own), so I can’t comment too much on how good/bad the extras are.
I would imagine the Blu-ray copy to be out soon and may consider buying that to replace my DVD copy at some point in the future if there is a big enough improvement in quality (some older films are only marginally better on Blu-ray than DVD, so not worth the premium for Blu-ray).
