C. Fuchs quote iconWhen compared to something like Scorsese's terrific The Aviator (about Howard Hughes with similar goals in the same era), this offering feels like a balsa model compared to the real thing.

Tomatometer quote iconAmelia takes the compelling raw materials of its subject’s life and does little with them, conventionally ticking off Earhart's accomplishments without exploring the soul of the woman.
