Synopsis

The life of playboy aviator Howard Hughes takes off thanks to a mesmerising turn from Leonardo DiCaprio and a return to form for director Martin Scorsese. The spikily intelligent Katharine Hepburn (Oscar winner Blanchett, superb) is the love of his life while Kate Beckinsale gives good hair-toss as Ava Gardner. The stunning aerial sequences, particularly Hughes' roof-shattering crashlanding in the Hollywood Hills, won't disappoint.
