‘Amelia’ already crashing and burning

amelia_poster

For a film that was once talked about being a serious Oscar contender (especially with ten nominees this year), Amelia is quickly crashing.  Here we have a biopic based on the life of Amelia Earhart and starring two-time Academy Award Best Actress winner, Hilary Swank, with Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor as support.  Also, the film was directed by Mira Nair, whose 2006’s The Namesake received a positive reception from critics.  But early reviews for Amelia have been poor with a Rotten Tomatoes Rating of 19% from 21 early critics.

It’s possible for a film with mixed reviews to be an Oscar contender, but Amelia is getting slammed for being too conventional.  Needless to say, I’m very disappointed by all this.
