Last Flight Home (2022)

“I think it pays to be loyal.” – Eli Timoner

Number of Times Seen – 1 (1 Dec 2022)

Brief Synopsis – Eli Timoner, a former CEO who suffered a stroke 40 years ago, decides to end his life with the support of his close family and friends.

My Take on it – This is a fascinating film that works as a last testament for the patriarch of this family.

The film chronicles the last few months of his life as he weighs the decisions along with those close to him and they allow the viewer a very intimate look at how things played out.

The movie is quite candid in the thoughts and opinions of all involved and that adds a much more poignant feel to the story no matter what anyone’s personal views might be on this subject.

There are some parts of the film that are not easy to watch, but it is done in such a loving manner because of the support and love of his family throughout this test of their family’s love for one another.

The fact that this was a film made by Eli’s daughter who chronicled everything as it happened adds a whole new level to things and it doesn’t feel as intrusive as one might expect because the viewer basically has approval to view this by the family.


MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – On the afternoon of January 13, 1982, Air Florida Flight 90 crashed into the 14th Street Bridge in Washington, D.C., and into the Potomac River, killing 78. Weeks later, Timoner, then 53, suffered a stroke that left him unable to walk without the use of a cane. (From Wikipedia)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
