Hilary Swank, who won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in "Boys Don't Cry," stars in "The Affair of the Necklace" (an Oscar nominee for Best Costume Design) as 18th century French countess Jeanne De La Motte Valois, whose title was stripped from her by the Royal Family during the late 18th Century. The gripping tale, full of mystery and intrigue, tells of her fight to restore her name and regain her royal status. Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times calls the movie an "elegant and remarkable odyssey, with Swank bringing the same touching, headstrong naiveté that characterized her Oscar-winning performance." Christopher Walken (America's Sweethearts, Pulp Fiction), Jonathan Pryce (Tomorrow Never Dies, Evita) and Simon Baker (Red Planet, L.A. Confidential, TV's The Guardian) co-star as the liaisons turn dangerous in the movie directed by Charles Shyer (Private Benjamin, Father of the Bride I & II).
