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

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).
