Nice attempt to capture the feeling of the time of the flying legend Amelia Earhard, who was an important aviation pioneer in the late 20s and 30s, a time that relegated women to second class citizens in many respects. I thought it was a well done film but not a film for everybody-maybe a film for anyone who has ever had an interest in planes and the history of important people in that genre. Excellent shots of early planes and the roaring days of flying in the 20s and 30s. Sad ending, which could not be avoided considering the tragic way Amelia Earhard vanished on the way to a tiny island in the vastness of the Pacific ocean in 1937. I read somewhere that someone found a pair of flying boots washed up on a small atoll in that area of the Pacific back there somewhere timewise, that some folk think might have originated with the last flight of AE. There are thousands of small islands in the Pacific, but not much where AE was flying, according to what I have read about her. Well, all in all, a film for history buffs and aviation fans, not for everybody, but not bad at all if you like that type of thing.People were not the same back then and I think the film strives to capture the way people were, and perhaps now, they appears stuffy, but I think they were that way.
