Amelia (review)

23 October 2009 3:12 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

I want to see a movie about Amelia Earhart that is thrilling. That is Indiana Jones adventurous. Someday, I think, someone will make a movie like that about Earhart, about whom that kind of story is simply begging to be told. But that would be a fantasy in the opposite direction of the fantasy in which Mira Nair and screenwriters Ron Bass (Passion of Mind, Snow Falling on Cedars) and Anna Hamilton Phelan chose to take their Amelia. I wouldn’t, in fact, expect an Indiana Jones-type fantasy from Nair, whose movies are so intimate and personal that it’s as if they exist to let us see the world through the eyes of her protagonists, as they see themselves and not as how the world sees them. And so this Amelia is a quiet, reflective film, and Earhart is not an icon or a symbol: she’s a human being, »
