Entertainment insiders are starting to get excited about the upcoming release of the movie "The Homesman" that will star Hilary Swank and Tommy Lee Jones. The western drama that was written and directed by Tommy Lee Jones is one in which many insiders predict will have Hollywood critics talking extensively about the excellent performance put forth by Hilary Swank whom Tommy Lee Jones recruited for the role.
The two time Academy Award winner disclosed in a recent interview that the part was both physically and mentally challenging as her character, Mary Bee Cuddy is a farmer. To film the role she was on a farm for almost two straight months "plowing the fields and pumping the water". Her character saves Tommy Lee Jones and in return he agrees to help her transport three mentally challenged women from Nebraska to Iowa.
The pairing of her with Tommy Lee Jones puts together two actors who possess exceptional dramatic range and who will work to find the multiple dimensions within a character. For movie critics this pairing is like a beautiful marriage and many are predicting that the performance of the uber competitive and talented Hilary Swank will be of an award nomination calibre.
Her pairing with Tommy Lee Jones in the movie "The Homesman" is not the only thing bringing a smile to her face as she is currently enjoying her relationship with French real estate broker Laurent Fleury whom she was recently photographed playing tennis with in France.
Hilary Swank looked in great shape in the pictures of her on the tennis court with her French beau and the rumours about her performance in "The Homestead" are that it was outstanding as well. It looks like two magical pairings that began in 2013, her meeting of Laurent Fleury and filming with actor Tommy Lee Jones are going to continue to make her smile and bring her accolades in 2014.
