The Aviator (2004) short review

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Howard Hughes, the movie producer and aviation pioneer.  On the one hand, this reads as a standard biopic, although well done (directed by Scorcese) and interesting. But much more importantly:  THE COSTUMES!  THE HAIR! THE SHOES!  HELLO!  So so so gorgeous, especially Cate Blanchett in an Oscar-worthy performance as Katharine Hepburn and Kate Beckinsale slightly miscast but still gorgeous as Ava Gardner.  Go.  Watch.  Now.
