  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
After losing her husband and not being able to let go, Kyle (Foster) boards a plane with a "Flightplan" from Berlin to New York. Waking from a nap, she discovers that her daughter Julia (Marlene Lawston) is missing from her side. At first she begins calmly looking for her little girl, but when she can't find her, Kyle becomes hysterical and turns the plane upside down. Sympathetic at first, the crew comes to her aid, but when the records indicate that the child never boarded the plane and no one seems to remember seeing her, one can't help but wonder if Kyle is losing her mind. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD picture exhibits a sharp and nicely detailed image, with natural textures, and pleasing shadow delineation and contrast even in the darkest scenes. Colors are well balanced throughout, with accurate fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. There is little in the way of pixelization or edge enhancement, for a pleasantly clean and solid picture overall. (Suzanne Hodges)
