“One thing I’ve learned: you never know where life is taking you, but it’s taking you.” This quote holds true for almost every breathing soul on earth. It is taken from ‘Big Mouth & Ugly Girl’, a fantastic novel by Hilary Swank. The American actress is one of the most successful and revered actresses of her generation. Her versatility and a gnawing penchant for eliciting the extra-ordinary is uncontested and exemplary in nature. Swank is a two-time Academy Award winner, doing so in the span of almost a decade. Her perfect body structure and physicality are often downplayed and criticised.
In spite of this dogmatic opinioting, Swank’s incredible acting prowess stands tall and overshadows everything else. The way she changes emotions from one scene to the other isn’t found normally in the glistening corridors of Hollywood. Saluting this strong and independent woman, we decided to list some of her best work and apprise you of her unbridled talent. Here is the list of top 11 movies of Hilary Swank.
11. New Year’s Eve (2011)
I have no penance against entertaining films with a multi-layered plot. My friend Iqbal knows better. But do I like them? Of course not. ‘New Year’s Eve’ was a similar sojourn into the happy bliss that Christmas time brings in people’s life, except they approached it completely differently. An intersection of numerous different people from different walks of life. the film sees Hilary Swank in the role of Claire Morgan, the successful and elegant Vice President of the Times Square Alliance. Her hectic job of conducting the perfect ball drop on the eve of Christmas is further marred by incongruous workers and incapable officials. Her frustrated yet kind display of affection and warmth is sure to ruffle you up for the upcoming festive season.
10. You Are Not You (2014)
