I'm glad the movie critics and I never seem to see eye-to-eye.

Because if I listened to them every time, I'd miss out on so many magical movies,

including this one...

One word can sum up this movie and the amazing lady it tells the story of:


Beautiful lady. (Both Amelia Earhart and Hilary Swank.)

Beautiful men. (Richard Gere and Ewan McGregor are delightful.)

Beautiful music. (Bravo to Rachel Portman, the brilliant woman who is responsible for composing some of my favorite film scores.)

Beautiful scenery.

Beautiful set and costumes and props. Gleaming silver airplanes, those were my favorite.

And too many beautiful quotes to remember. The Amelia portrayed in the movie was so kind and seemed so genuinely happy and full of life, and so many phrases she spoke were quite inspiring.

Forget the critics and take it from me -- a movie not to be missed on the big screen.

This movie is on my 'to see' list, so I'm happy to read you enjoyed it. I love Richard Gere.

I haven't wanted to see a movie in a long time. But this one looks fantastic.
