Hilary Swank’s ‘Conviction’ releases trailer

By Scott Mendelson

HollywoodNews.com: Hillary Swank is a rare thing, a successful, critically-acclaimed actress who has made a full career primarily on lead roles and/or star vehicles in genre pictures and genuine dramas.

To my recollection, ever since “Boys Don’t Cry” in 1999, she’s never had to play the unattractive best friend, she’s never had to play the token girlfriend/love interest, and she’s never had to play the whimpering hostage. The closest she’s come to any of those was her work in Chris Nolan’s “Insomnia,” which isn’t exactly a bad career low.
