Hilary Swank (top left) plays Amelia Earhart in a movie simply titled Amelia. The casting in this movie is superb and Hilary Swank is perfect for the role not only because she's convincing as a determined historic woman aviator but she also looks like Amelia Earhart! You can compare their looks with the photos above and left (the real Amelia Earhart).
We've all seen how actress Amy Adams played Amelia Earhart in Night at the Museum 2. There, our famous aviator is depicted as playful and alluring - which is only fitting for that kind of movie. In Amelia, which is a documentary drama directed by Indian director Mira Nair (video interview follows), it's all about the real person and how she lived and faced the challenges as a brave woman aviator and one who made history.
