The legacy of iconic pilot Amelia Earhart still sparks curiosity today. Amelia Earhart is now the subject of a new biopic simply entitled, Amelia, starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and Ewan McGregor. Under Mira Nair’s direction, the film traces Earhart’s (Hilary Swank) aviation milestones, all within the undercurrent of her burgeoning intimate affair with George P. Putnam (Richard Gere), a well-established publisher. Like all procedurals, the movie acts not only as emotive siphon but also history lesson. Filled with crisp tableaux and acting powerhouses, Amelia opens October 23rd in limited release.
