Aloha is the story of Brian Gilcrest (Bradley Cooper), a combat-scarred military defense contractor on assignment in Oahu, Hawaii who is trying to reconnect with the space program. Part of Brian’s assignment is to organize a traditional Hawaiian ritual blessing with the native Hawaiians for a new pedestrian gate project being funded by billionaire industrialist Carson Welch (Bill Murray). Carson is also looking to develop nearby land into a space center to launch satellites.
The Air Force assigned Allison Ng (Emma Stone) an Air Force fighter pilot as Brian’s liaison to escort him around the island. As a native Hawaiian, Allison is a staunch defender of Hawaiians against the encroachments of Brian’s employer who is eager to militarize Hawaiian air space by a launching weapons satellite.
“In any of its many forms, I have found that nothing beats fun.” – Brian Gilcrest
“The future isn’t just something that happens. It’s a brutal force with a great sense of humor that will steamroll you if you’re not watching.” – Carson Welch
“There was a time I knew everything in the sky. Every satellite, every constellation, souvenirs of space walks and astronauts and rockets launched by NASA in the ’60s. As a kid, I looked up and felt the future. It belonged to me.” – Brian Gilcrest
“You sold your soul so many times nobody’s buying anymore.” – Allison Ng
