At age 39, she sets out on an attempt to circumnavigate the globe, an adventure that catapults her into aviation myth.Written by

A Lockheed 12 Electra Junior was used to represent the modified 10E Electra that Ms. Earhart flew in her final flight. The 12 is smaller than the 10. See more »
After Amelia leaves on her final flight, there is a flying montage. The next scene is a POV shot from Amelia's 16mm camera which zooms in. The next shot shows her camera with 3 fixed lens on a rotating disc that was common for the era which also did not have zoom lens. See more »
A delicate strong story.But not a biography. Only homage for a belief, vision and adventure. So, it is difficult to define a film without great ambitions but with good taste.The bricks are not the truth or realistic portrait. Feelings, pieces from gestures and sage wise are gift for the public. And a sun - shine Hilary Swank. A Richard Gere , same lost hero of old years. The fever of fly, the small details and interior fight, the end as mist and flavor of a dream in the skin of reality. It is not a chronicle, testimony or documentary. It is not a masterpiece but may be a beautiful pendant.Must see! For a travel in the teenage corners.
