Amelia Takes Off On DVD In February
Even with a two-time Academy Award winner, a Golden Globe winner, and Golden Globe nominee, director Mira Nair couldn’t put together a biopic worthy of moviegoers’ money, let alone any awards. Amelia may not have soared as high as hoped in theaters, but it’ll get a second go-around when the DVD and Blu-ray takes flight on February 2nd.
Based on the true story of renowned aviatrix Amelia Earhart (Hilary Swank), Amelia tells of how the young girl from Kansas grew up to earn the title "Queen of the Air." Aviation achievements aren’t the film’s sole focus. It also explores the relationships between Amelia and her husband, George P. Putnam (Richard Gere), and her lover, Gene Vidal (Ewan McGregor).
After predicting Amelia could bring Swank another round at the Oscars, it ultimately fell flat. Even with poor theatrical and critical performances, I’ve still got a flicker of interest in getting a copy of the film. Perhaps not enough interest to drop $39.99 on the BD, but maybe to hand over $29.98 for the DVD. Both versions come with a modest selection of bonus material appropriate in terms of price and content. You can check out the full list below.
