A View From The Top

The sky's the limit for country-girl Donna Jensen (Gwyneth Paltrow, Shakespeare in Love) in A View From The Top

Donna Jensen dreams of pursuing a life far beyond the confines of her Nevada home-town.  When Donna spots Sally Weston (Candice Bergen, Sweet Home Alabama) on television discussing her glamorous job as a flight attendant, she becomes intent on becoming Nevada's most successful trolley-dolly.  Soon the plucky Donna lands a job at a small airline, where she befriends Sherry (Kelly Preston, What A Girl Wants) and Christine (Christina Applegate, Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy).  

While catering to gamblers and drunks on-board, Donna dreams of working for a cutting-edge airline.  Donna's dreams look set to come true when John Whitney (Mike Myers, Austin Powers) begins recruiting for Royalty Airlines. 

Academy-award winner Gwyneth Paltrow has forged a successful career in dramatic films, thanks to her turns in Shakespeare In Love, The Talented Mr Ripley and Sylvia.  In A View From The Top, director Bruno Barreto specifically cast Paltrow against type.
