THE HOMESMAN: HILARY SWANK IS SPECTACULAR AS AN INTREPID AND TRAGIC PIONEER WOMAN

Hilary Swank did it again. She created another unforgettable character in “The Homesman.” Mary Bee Cuddy is a hard working successful pioneer woman in Nebraska territory with all the necessary determination and perseverance, but without the equally necessary husband. The men in her town respect her, but consider her to be homely and bossy. She’s 31 and can’t find a husband to save her life. This highly ethical woman volunteers to escort three mentally unstable women back to an institution in Iowa. Her cross country trek with not-so-ethical Tommy Lee Jones’ character is astonishing. There are moments of true horror and humor too. And there was nothing funny about being a pioneer woman.

    It is appropriate that Hillary is in a movie that includes many horses!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
