Her exploits made her a hero; her disappearance made her a legend. Hilary Swank stars as pioneering American aviatrix Amelia Earhart, who defied the stereotypes of her time by becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic in 1932, and whose ill-fated around-the-world attempt five years later would be one of the century's greatest mysteries. Equal parts compelling drama, stirring romance and epic adventure, director Mira Nair's biopic also stars Ewan McGregor, Christopher Eccleston, and Richard Gere as Earhart's charismatic business partner and adoring husband, George Putnam.
