Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Howard Hughes, the billionaire, the filmmaker, the recluse and The Aviator. After inheriting his father's machine tool company, the young Howard Hughes discovers he can combine his passions--flying, moviemaking and women--by coming to Hollywood. In 1930, while building one of the world's largest aviation companies, Hughes produces Hell's Angels, a perfectionist's homage to World War I flyers. The man who eventually produces almost 30 films shocks society with The Outlaw, starring buxom Jane Russell, builds the world's largest airplane, sets the world speed record and invents the half-cup bra.

After a decade of total obscurity, Helfgott achieves both personal and professional fulfillment by finding peace on the very thing that drove him to the edge his music, as he also finds love and support from a remarkable woman. Starring Academy Award-nominee Lynn Redgrave ("Gods and Monsters", "Peter Pan"), and Academy Award-nominee Armin Mueller-Stahl ("Eastern Promises", "The Thirteenth Floor"). Directed by Academy Award-winner Scott Hicks ("Snow Falling on Cedars", "No Reservations").
