Today, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment is releasing Mira Nair’s Amelia, starring Hilary Swank, on DVD and Blu-Ray. Though it didn’t get the best reviews, we all enjoyed it. We reviewed Amelia when it opened in theatres on October 23rd. Our consensus was:
“Though not the Oscar contender everyone was expecting, Amelia is nice bio-pic of Amelia Earhart, made stronger by an excellent lead performance from Hilary Swank, and beautiful aerial cinematography. *** (Out of 4)”
The DVD includes deleted scenes, making-of featurettes and Movietone news reels of the real Amelia Earhart reaching different milestones. The Blu-Ray also includes a digital copy.
To tie in with the release, E1 Films is releasing the 50-minute documentary, Amelia Earhart: Queen of the Air, on DVD. It was produced for The Biography Channel, combining black & white and colour footage.
Both Amelia and Amelia Earhart: Queen of the Air give you a very interesting look at the life of a legend.
