(Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes)

M-Net Movies All Stars, DStv Channel 111 will air the film The Aviator on August 25, 2019, at 20h00.

The Aviator was directed by Martin Scorsese in 2004 and stars Oscar winner Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett and Kate Beckinsale. In this multiple award-winning biopic, a director takes the film industry by storm. But his obsessions threaten his career and his sanity.

Billionaire and aviation tycoon Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a successful public figure: a director of big-budget Hollywood films such as Hell's Angels, a passionate lover of Hollywood leading ladies Katharine Hepburn (Cate Blanchett) and Ava Gardner (Kate Beckinsale), and an aviation pioneer who helps build TWA into a major airline. But in private, Hughes remains tormented, suffering from paralyzing phobias and depression. The higher he rises, the farther has to fall.
