Hilliary Swank and Richard Gere portrayed their characters to a tee. The story was very inspiring and for the most part, well done. Camera technique in a few spots was shaky, but wasn't a distraction. If you're interested in women, courage, and flying, this is the movie to see! I don't know how true to the real life of Amelia Earhart it was, but it was close enough. Small children might not appreciate it, but young adults and adults of all ages would enjoy it.

Love True Stories ... Historical

By lisattrend

This movie, being a true story .... I already knew the ending. The movie was done well, Swank and Gere were great. I think anyone who likes True story movies will love it. The movie is done without bad language and sexual scenes, so bringing older children is great. Definitely glad I spent the $10.50 for the movie ticket (while some movies are best rented at home). I love the touches of old/black and white photos and footage. It made the movie really put you back in the times of Amelia's travels. Loved seeing Eleanor Roosevelt in it too :)

Amelia better than critics say

By SeniorViewer

Without the Hollywood glitz, Amelia depicts the passion for flying, the risks involved, and the prejudice towards women experiencing "men's" careers realistically and carefully. The acting was excellent by both Gere and Swank and the tempo was just right. Definitely a must see for those who remember the early days of flying and those who are history buffs.
