This is a period piece and a character study -- both very well done. Some younger viewers may be looking for more action and maybe a happy ending. Maybe a car chase or two.
Works well as a love story between complex characters and as a depiction of Amelia and her time.
Tarentino can change history for fun and profit, but these folks did their best to try depicting truth. Gere and Swank exhibit high level acting skills here and the story moves well from scene to scene.
Not the kind of movie that is going to be popular with the average viewers and not a big money-maker, but a fine film nonetheless.
