Amelia Earhart is one of the most outstanding women in the world who made history by marking herself as the first woman to fly across Atlantic. She put women in aviation possible and served as an inspiration to every woman in the world that they can pursue their dreams.
If you haven’t heard about Amelia Earhart I think you should watch Amelia movie by Fox Searchlight Pictures formerly known as 20th Century Fox as this will be your introduction to the life of this extraordinary woman.
I love Hilary Swanks portrayal of Amelia and the make-up they did freckles and all, she almost look like the real deal. The recreation of all the airplanes Amelia flew, especially of the Elektra was well done. The aerial shots were lovely you almost feel like your up in the sky flying with her.
I think they should thank Night at the Museum 2 and the inclusion of Amelia Earhart in that movie, it definitely brought peoples interest about her, one of the main reason I wanted to see this movie again.
And did I say Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor was in this movie too?
This movie will be shown in Philippine Cinemas on December 2. Movie runs 2 hours 10 minutes.
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 (two time Academy Award® winner 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 (Golden Globe® winner 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.
AMELIA is directed by Mira Nair (THE NAMESAKE, VANITY FAIR, MONSOON WEDDING) from a screenplay by Academy Award® winner Ron Bass (RAIN MAN) and Anna Hamilton Phelan. The film is produced by Ted Waitt, Kevin Hyman and Lydia Dean Pilcher with Ron Bass and Hilary Swank serving as executive producers and Don Carmody as co-producer.
