Sorry, it's just not enough to have Hillary Swank look the part, which she does. This movie had all the historical ingredients to be a great film, and it instead falls back into the same old bland dialog and formula plot that sinks so many biography movies. This film is like a made for TV movie - paints a pretty picture and refuses to go where no man, or no woman, has gone before. Which means it's a whitewash of history. Offers no real interesting insights into this extraordinary woman - not even her mysterious disappearance. For once, why not just stick to the facts, and give us a slightly less glamorous Amelia, minimize the love story, and show what a truly remarkable explorer she was? How dangerous her flying really was, and the challenges she had to overcome, both in the air and on the ground, in a male-dominated society. This film touches on this, but rather than paint with strong strokes, it uses an airbrush. Not a complete waste of time, just average.

Ordinary film of extraordinary womanReviewed bybbkfinnVote: 4/10
You have to admit it...Hilary Swank just explodes with charisma (it shows up whenever she smiles on screen). From her Oscar winning turn in 'Boys Don't Cry',to her second AA winning turn in Clint Eastwood's 'Million Dollar Baby',and now as early flight pioneer, Amelia Earhart,she has charmed movie audiences all over the map. Mira Nair (director of such fine film fare as 'Salaam Bombay','Monsoon Wedding','The Namesake',to mention but a few) directs from a well written screenplay,with world class character development,by Ronald Bass & Anna Hamilton Phelan. Amelia is painted as a true feminist icon who led a life of adventure & romance (and not just a little dash of the free spirited bohemian,which was rare for that time). Richard Gere is well cast as her mentor/lover/husband,George Putnam. The rest of the ensemble take on their roles with panache (among others,Ewan McGregor,as Gene Vidal,Christopher Eccleston,who has previously shared screen time with McGregor in Danny Boyle's excellent,'Shallow Grave',and keep your eyes open for a winning performance by newcomer,William Cuddy as a young Gore Vidal,years before he would become a author/screen writer). Despite a few minor quirks in the historical department (most of which will go over the heads of all but those in the know),this is a fine film that will probably enjoy a re-newed life when it turns up on DVD or Blu Ray disc. Rated PG by the MPAA,this film serves up a rude word or two,some mild adult situations,involving adultery & some on screen smoking & drinking.
Some people shouldn't see some movies.
This is a period piece and a character study -- both very well done. Some younger viewers may be looking for more action and maybe a happy ending. Maybe a car chase or two.
Works well as a love story between complex characters and as a depiction of Amelia and her time.
Tarentino can change history for fun and profit, but these folks did their best to try depicting truth. Gere and Swank exhibit high level acting skills here and the story moves well from scene to scene.
Not the kind of movie that is going to be popular with the average viewers and not a big money-maker, but a fine film nonetheless.
