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 :)

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.

The film is not just about Amelia, it’s about a person's dreams, desires, and determination. Amelia lectures and speaks out for women's rights, advocating for them to follow their dreams, or just living their life on their terms. She doesn't want to be tied down or restricted.
Parts of the film are a bit slow and repetitive, but overall this was a nice film about someone who just wants is to fly, Amelia shouldn't be forgotten. It's a good story with great acting, characters and is very pleasing to watch.
