Amelia Earhart is one of the most iconic women of the 20th century and lived the kind of exciting life that warrants such a description. Despite this, Amelia, starring Hilary Swank as the titular aviator, is almost as lackluster, insincere, and dull as a high school history book’s account of her life. The filmmakers, including director Mira Nair (The Namesake), seem more interested in mythologizing Earhart than truly exploring who the woman was. Even an affair with Gene Vidal (Ewan MacGregor), with whom Earhart helped create the FAA, is made to seem like an act of feminist heroism -- after all, George Putnam (Richard Gere) agreed to marry her with the caveat that she never be kept from flying by gravity or man (111 min.).
