The movie, which begins after World War II, focuses on three women and a man on a flight from Holland to New Zealand. The interconnecting stories of each individual involve unrequited love, miscarriage, adultery, the attempted rape of a wife by a husband, and much more. While a lot that takes place will have you in tears, the movie is not a soap opera. It is a superb depiction of believable events.
Don’t confuse this film with another current, popular picture entitled “Bridesmaids.” I found that movie to be too coarse – a female version of “Animal House.” “Bride Flight,” on the other hand, a sleeper movie that’s not well-known or widely discussed, is a winner and well worth seeing.

Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch does his weekly take on new movies--from blockbusters to art films. His rating system is as plainspoken as his language. A "plus" for movies he likes, a "minus" for ones he doesn't. Watch and hear as the New Yorkiest of all New Yorkers tells it like it is. The Mayor at the Movies is a production of New York Insider TV.
