I watched it on TVNZ on demand; it was good. The flying sequences were really nicely filmed and the actress, Kate Elliot did a terrific job as Jean. In the credits was reference to the main aircraft being used, Jan Chisum's Gipsy Moth and Guy Clapshaw's Proctor dressed as a Gull Six, both of which looked very nice indeed. The filming took place in Auckland and Thames (?!) with shots at Whenuapai according to the rumour mill, but also Dairy Flat.
There were a couple of errors though, Batten's book My Life was printed after the events that take place in the movie and Amelia Earhart hadn't gone missing at the time Batten made her Tasman crossing to NZ, but other than that, it was good. It was meant to be a fictional take on historic events, though.
Cheers for the heads up.
Just watched it. My partner has been an very active flyer in the past and now only is a keen occasional pilot but still loves all things "women flying". Other than the odd wee error, as noted in others comments, and some fairly large leaps in the history line, it was a well performed and shot piece. And only created this year. Great work.
