Amelia on DVD and Blu-Ray Review

Amelia on DVD and Blu-Ray Review

You can own the DVD or the Blu-Ray today!

Synopsis: Two-time Academy Award® Winner Hilary Swank delivers an unforgettable performance as Amelia Earhart, the legendary American aviatrix who boldly flew into the annals of history. Richard Gere co-stars as her charismatic business partner and adoring husband George Putnam. Bound by ambition and love, their enduring marriage could not be broken by Amelia's determination to fly -- nor her passionate affair with Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor). Equal parts gripping drama, stirring romance and epic adventure, Amelia will take your breath away and send your spirit soaring!

Review: In an era when adventure was meant only for men, Amelia Earhart was a poineer in aviation.  In this new biopic, Hilary Swank plays Earhart and her performance is fantastic.  I'm not generally a fan of Swank, but she really drove this one home.

The movie doesn't just chronicle her triumphant first trip across the Atlantic back in 1928.  In that trip, of course, she was just a passenger not a pilot, but it did make her the first woman to make the trip.  Her later 1937 flight around the world would be when she would eventually disappear.  The movie takes her entire life into account and gives us a great biopic on this fantastic woman.

The DVD is great for those without a DVD player.   The blu-ray is definately the way to go, if you have the technology.  The high-definition is the most enjoyable way to watch this and any film.  I recommend this for anyone that enjoys biopics or even just a good romance movie.
