IN STORES NOW

Hilary Swank works hard playing famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, who died at 39 flying around the world in 1937. But this pedestrian biopic tries to do so much -- the plot includes the Great Depression, aviation's birth and Earhart's history with her alcoholic dad -- that it never achieves intimacy with the heroine. (20th Century Fox, $30)
