A miscast Keaton, but otherwise solid.
4 February 2007 | by fedor8See all my reviews

The film is interesting, with a good Dern and a good Hauer, but Keaton is badly miscast. Her hectic, slightly quirky style doesn't fit the role of this woman at all. And I can't imagine Keaton riding a bicycle without help, let alone flying an airplane; she looks as out of place in that cockpit as Ernest Borgnine in a bedroom putting ice-cubes on Kim Basinger's stomach. It was obvious that the PC 90s would add a feminist touch to this woman, whether she really was a hard bitch or not. They just forgot to mention the fact that she dumped her husband (and kids, I think) and some other less heroic details. The way they make Earhart scream and bitch all the time seems a little exaggerated, but there is no question that this must have been a woman with the ego of a Warren Beatty. The aerial shots are nice.
