The Theory of Flight Reviews

a charming bit of whimsy that probably would crash and burn with lesser talents at the controls

| Original Score: 3/5

Kenneth Branagh and Helena Bonham Carter generate enough good will to keep aloft a charming bit of whimsy that probably would crash and burn with lesser talents at the controls.

The cinematic equivalent to experimental light aircraft, this is a bumpy ride that sputters and fails, not quite crashing yet never soaring above its earnest intentions.

Film Journal International

Carter's bravura performance is the reason to see The Theory of Flight, but it's a shame that nothing else in the film matches the obvious care she put into her role.

It's one thing to be offbeat and unconventional and quite another to be unbelievable.
