   I was very disappointed with this film.  It had a good cast (Swank and Gere) and I generally like these biopics (ex. The Aviator with Leonardo DiCapprio).  I found most of this movie incredibly boring and very little insight was presented about Amelia the person.  Yes, she has a strange relationship with her promoter/husband and an even stranger one with a married flying instructor (Ian McGregor) and we do briefly see her fascination with flying (about 30 seconds) …
