Hilary Swank plays Amelia Earhart in Amelia...

As always, if the YouTube video goes dead, go here for the official version.
I'm not sure if this seemingly straightforward biopic will have any original insights to it, but it is certainly well-cast and looks handsome as all hell. Swank is one of those actresses who is still hungry, so she'll take any real role and knock it out of the park (I even liked her in the goofy B-movie blast The Core). I do like how a seemingly unbilled Ewan McGregor shows up in several key moments, and it's always good to see Richard Gere playing his age. I've heard good things about director Mira Nair's previous picture, The Namesake, so as always, we'll see.
