Synopsis

Visionary. Lover. Dreamer. Fighter. Legend. Icon. AMELIA.

An extraordinary life of adventure, celebrity and continuing mystery comes to light in AMELIA, a vast, thrilling account of legendary aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart (Hilary Swank).

After becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia was thrust into a new role as America's sweetheart—the legendary "goddess of light," known for her bold, larger-than-life charisma. Yet, even with her global fame solidified, her belief in flirting with danger and standing up as her own, outspoken woman never changed. She was an inspiration to people everywhere, from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt (Cherry Jones) to the men closest to her heart: her husband, promoter and publishing magnate George P. Putnam (Richard Gere), and her long time friend and lover, pilot Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor). In the summer of 1937, Amelia set off on her most daunting mission yet: a solo flight around the world that she and George both anxiously foresaw as destined, whatever the outcome, to become one of the most talked-about journeys in history.

  • 1 star "horrible movie...waste of a good performance by swank."
  • 1 star "this movie was beyond boring and poorly crafted. A waste of a strong performance by Swank, and Gere. A complete mess of a film."
  • 2 stars "I don't understand why they would make a bio-movie and not tell us anything of value or new about the lead character. Everything they said I could find on the internet. Notwithstanding the boring, dull movie, Swank gives a great performance. Unfortunately the film sucked"
