Flying Blind Review

Image for Flying Blind

Frankie (McCrory) is a reserved, career-focused aerospace engineer whose staid life is reinvigorated by a passionate affair with young Muslim student Kahil (Oudghiri). But is he in it for her, or for what she knows about the new model of drone she's privy to?


Superb performances and austere direction turn a potential melodrama about a middle-aged aerospace engineer falling for a younger Algerian into a fascinating treatise on kneejerk British attitudes to the complexities of Islam.

A tough, compelling thriller touching on race, prejudice and contemporary Britain. Not Blitz, in other words.
