Actress Kelly Reilly shares her experience filming "Flight"

Already getting Oscar buzz, “Flight” is a film about a Captain that lands a doomed plane.  In her first American television appearance, British actress Kelly Reilly shares with Soledad her experience working with a focused Denzel Washington.

 Reilly plays a recovering heroin addict that tries to help the alcoholic Denzel Washington post- fame. To prepare, she worked with a recovered heroin addict to really capture the essence of the struggle that leads a person to drugs and to stray away from stereotypes.

 As for the underlying message in the film, she reverts to what the director said while filming, saying, “There are a lot of messages in his movies, but he [director, Robert Zemeckis] does not like to moralize or throw lessons down the audience’s throat so to speak. He’d actually rather just tell a story and let people get what they get from it.”
