Amelia Preview/Synopsis + Trailer

Amelia Oct 23

Directed by Mira Nair ( The Namesake, Vanity Fair ) Starring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, Ewan McGregor. Written by Oscar winner Ron Bass ( Rain Man ) Cinematography by Oscar nominee Stuart Dryburgh ( The Painted Vail, The Piano ) Edited by Allyson C. Johnson ( The Namesake, Fierce People ) Original music by Oscar winner Gabriel Yared ( The English Patient, Cold Mountain )

Film is about the life, then rise to popularity of pilot Amelia Earhart and her sometimes difficult marriage with her husband George before she went missing over the Pacific Ocean in 1937 to never be found.

Rated PG-13 for some sensuality, language and smoking.

Oscar chances ? Good in a lot of categories; most likely for Actress, Supporting Actor, Screenplay and Cinematography. In a weak year for actresses ( again ? ) I would bet the odds are on Swank to recieve a Oscar nod for this portrayal. Could it be # three for her ?

About Me

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
