My husband & I went to see “Amelia” last night. It wasn’t our first pick–“An Education” was sold out, darn. This movie was more like a colorized documentary with very little to warm up to.
Hillary Swank was a dead ringer for Amelia Earhart, but she didn’t really bring her to life. There was nothing to grab onto emotionally!
I wanted to know more about her childhood, what her mother was like, how she learned to fly, etc. etc. etc. When her plane went down, I felt nothing. And her story is one of the saddest in history. It’s haunted me for decades, ever since I first heard it. What a shame the moviemakers missed the mark.
