Amelia DVD Review

I recently had the opportunity to review Amelia on DVD.  It was a wonderful movie, starring Hillary Swank and Richard Gere.  I was somewhat familiar with Amelia Earhart, the “Queen of the Air” who flew all over the world.  To this day, when I meet another woman who says she is a pilot, I am awe struck.  What an amazing talent and passion!  Both Swank and Gere did amazing jobs in their roles.  There are some great Special Features on the DVD as well, including Deleted Scenes, Making the movie “Amelia,” and a short about Amelia Earhart.  This is a DVD I am proud to own and share with others. 

Fox Home Entertainment released “Amelia” on DVD and Blu-Ray on February 2nd, 2010.  The DVD retails for $29.99, but you can purchase it for $17.99 on right now.

Experience the romance, struggle and triumph of legendary aviatrix Amelia Earhart as she chases love and lives her dreams in Amelia, landing on Blu-ray Disc with Digital Copy and DVD February 2 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Hailed as “The Queen of the Air,” Amelia boldly flew into the annals of history with her solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean.  Bound by ambition and love, her enduring marriage to George Putnam could not be broken by her determination to fly, or a secret passionate affair. Equal parts gripping drama, stirring romance and epic adventure, Amelia will take your breath away and send your spirit soaring!

Directed by Mira Nair (Vanity Fair, Moonsoon Wedding), Amelia stars two-time Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby, Boys Don’t Cry), Golden Globe® winner Richard Gere (Chicago, Pretty Woman) and Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge).

The Amelia Blu-ray Disc and DVD include deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, Fox Movie Channel specials and more. Amelia will be available on Blu-ray Disc with Digital Copy for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada and Standard DVD for $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada.

    I saw this trailer just recently and it looked really interesting. This is a movie that I’d love to see but I’d have to make sure to watch it while hubs is at work. He’s not a Richard Gere fan. 🙂
