Howard Hughes in The Aviator
Howard Hughes is one of the most legendary obsessively brilliant geeks of the 20th century. His dedication to his loves of cinema and aeronautics led to the development of some of the greatest advancements made at the time in those respective fields. Unfortunately, his genius came at a price. His profound mental illness is brought to life with care in The Aviator, through a gutsy performance by Leonardo Dicaprio and the outstanding direction of celluloid master, Martin Scorcese.
