Good afternoon, everyone. Heading out to the movies this weekend? Read reviews and watch trailers for this week's new releases before doing so.
Among the crop: "Amelia," the much-anticipated Earhart biopic starring Hilary Swank (who says she is actually getting a pilot's license, by the way). Unfortunately, our critic finds it a bit like watching "Titanic":
Even for those who never heard of the woman, the film telegraphs its unhappy conclusion. Are you going to give up flying, a reporter asks, after achieving this milestone? "Not while there's still life left in me," Earhart answers, portentously. Nair has Swank repeat the line again, toward the end of the film, just in case you're really thick.
Elsewhere in today's Style section: David Malitz covers CMJ. Jason Horowitz profiles Beau Biden. The iPhone is now being used to generate actual art. And a certain NPR quiz show that frequently features a certain Washington Post gossip columnist is finally doing a show live from New York City.
