This one surprised me. I thought that this was going to be another run-of-the-mill "it was the maid in the ballroom with the candlestick" movie. No, thank God, it was not. Flightplan illustrates how thrillers should be made: clever, fun, and thrilling. Jodie Foster plays the mother of a girl that has mysteriously vanished on a flight departing from Berlin to the Big Apple. At first, calm, Foster begins to worry when she is no where to be found and the staff seems less than interested in helping. Finally, an air marshal helps her search, but begins to question her sanity. She realizes that she must rely on herself to find her girl.

To tell you the complete truth, I have never thoroughly enjoyed Foster's movies. Panic Room stood out among the rest, but this was the moment I gained full respect for her. She brilliantly plays the part of an obviously stressed mother and I could not have asked for more. It may not have been the best, but I promise it is close. Let Flightplan surprise you, too.
