R.K.O. Pictures owner, aviation tycoon, and billionaire Howard Hughes is the focus of this 2004 biopic. Leonardo DiCaprio gives a masterful performance as Hughes, lending romance to his relationships with Katharine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett) and Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale) and sympathy to his descent into madness. A period piece, “The Aviator” is visually stunning, as evidenced by its Academy Awards for Best Costume Design and Best Art Direction.
