Amelia: An Aviation Biopic Ready for Take Off

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 27, 2009 in Cinema |

I’m usually not a fan of biopics but I think this case I might make an exception: The story of Amelia Earhart is a really strong one that’s ready for a fresh look. Add to that Hilary Swank as the aviator and surround her with the likes of Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor and you may have a winner, and if nothing else the cinematography that I see here looks beautiful. I even like the nice touch of having the scarf in the letter “A” on the logo. Amelia will fly into theaters in October and is directed by Mira Nair.
