A look at the life of legendary american pilot amelia earhart, who disappeared while flying over the pacific ocean in 1937 in an attempt to make a flight around the world.

"...an instant bio classic...  Ray Bennett, Hollywood Reporter

Editor's Note
Hilary Swank and Richard Gere star in director Mira Nair's biopic tracing the life of famed aviator Amelia Earhart -- who made history in 1932 by becoming the first woman ever to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. The trip made the aviatrix a national celebrity -- with help from her publicist George Putnam (Gere), whom she fell in love with and eventually married. Their union was tested, however, as Earhart developed feelings for contemporary Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor ), and the couple's marriage faced the ultimate tragedy years later, as Earhart's fierce independent spirit spurred her to attempt to fly around the world -- a venture that infamously shrouded her in mystery, as the pilot simply vanished after crashing into the Pacific Ocean.

Expert Review Amelia - DVD Review
By: Sean O'Connell filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 1/22/2010 9:44 PM
How does the director of the jubilant Monsoon Wedding and the opulent Vanity Fair create as chaste a film as Amelia? Several factors contribute to the subdued mood of Mira Nair's Amelia Earhart biopic. Languid pacing ensures that the aviatrix's story rarely soars. Hilary Swank's decision to play the tenacious Earhart as an isolated, attention-shy loner deflates some of the story's inherent drama. No matter where you point fingers, the end result is the same. Amelia is a quiet, reserved, and unexpectedly small picture about an aviation pioneer whose historical legacy -- due in large part to her mysterious disappearance while circumnavigating the globe -- has become larger than life....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Hollywood Reporter
"Freckle-faced, prairie-voiced and fiercely independent, Hilary Swank's depiction of Amelia Earhart in Mira Nair's biographical film AMELIA is of a high order." 10/18/2009

Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Swank has fun in the role....Christopher Eccleston has a small but powerful role as Fred Noonan, the navigator that vanished with Earhart on her last flight." 10/19/2009
