Hilary Swank is an actress best known for Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don’t Cry, which earned her an Oscar and a Golden Globe for best actress in 2000 and 2004. Her other films include the romantic comedy P.S. I Love You and Amelia, in which she portrayed legendary American pilot Amelia Earhart.
Adrien Brody began his acting career in television series, including the 1988 series Annie McGuire and Home At Last. With over 50 films to his name, he is best known for his 2002 film The Pianist, which landed him an Oscar and a Caesar award for best actor.
He also directed and produced a documentary titled Stone Barn Castle, which chronicles the actor’s seven-year restoration of a partially burnt stone building hidden in the woods of upstate New York, seeking to fulfil his dream of having a place in the country.
When two-time Oscar-winning actor Hilary Swank asked to visit an animal rescue centre in Adelaide’s south earlier this month, she was regretfully told no.
A case of unfortunate timing meant Minton Farm Native Animal Rescue Centre owners Glenn and Beverley Langley would be away and unable to open their not-for-profit facility for the superstar.
However the animal-loving US actor was determined to get up close and personal with some of the centre’s 300 orphaned and injured animals so her assistant rescheduled the visit for yesterday.
In Adelaide to film Australian sci-fi thriller I Am Mother — a futuristic film about a generation of humans raised by a mother robot following the extinction of mankind — the 43-year-old and her partner took time out from their busy schedule to spend about 90 minutes at the Cherry Gardens-based facility.
“We went into the hospital and I showed her all the injured animals in there and the way we rehabilitate them,” Mrs Langley said.
“She was very grateful for allowing her to come here, because we’re not open to the public and (she was) very supportive of the work we were doing.”
But it was the emus that captured the Hollywood actor’ heart during the visit.Read More

Hilary Swank is starring in the science-fiction thriller “I Am Mother,” which has started shooting at South Australia’s Adelaide Studios, Variety has learned exclusively.
Swank, who won best actress Academy Awards for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Boys Don’t Cry,” is joining Clara Rugaard in a unique mother-daughter story.
Rugaard portrays the first of a new generation of humans raised by “Mother” – a kindly robot designed to repopulate the earth following the extinction of mankind. But their unique bond is threatened when a blood-drenched woman (played by Swank) inexplicably arrives, calling into question everything she’s been told about the outside world.
“I Am Mother” is based on an original concept by director Grant Sputore and writer Michael Lloyd Green. The screenplay was on the 2016 Black List.
“I Am Mother” is Sputore’s feature debut. The special effects team at WETA Workshop (“Avatar,” “The Lord of The Rings”) has created the titular robot.
The movie is produced by Southern Light Films’ Timothy White and the Penguin Empire’s Kelvin Munro. Anna Vincent and Michael Lloyd Green co-produce. Executive producers are Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas and Jean-Luc De Fanti from Rhea Films (“American Made”) along with Bryce Menzies, Philip Wade, John Wade and Sputore.
“It is a privilege to welcome Hilary Swank to our film,” Sputore said. “She is a remarkable performer who always brings tremendous commitment and honesty to the screen. I’m excited about the journey ahead with Hilary and the talented Clara Rugaard.”
Swank’s credits include Tommy Lee Jones’ “The Homesman,” “Freedom Writers,” “P.S. I Love You” and Steven Soderbergh’s comedy “Logan Lucky.” She will next be seen in Danny Boyle’s television series “Trust,” starring as Gail Getty, the mother of kidnapped heir John Paul Getty III.
“I Am Mother” is an Australian production financed by Hercules Film Investments with major investment from Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation in association with Adelaide Film Festival, Screenwest, Lotterywest, Fin VFX, Blockhead and Kojo.
Mister Smith Entertainment is handling international sales, with WME Global’s Graham Taylor overseeing U.S. sales. Studiocanal is handling distribution in Australia and New Zealand. Swank is repped by WME.

He convinces his bartender brother Clyde (Driver) and hairdresser sister Mellie (Keough) to help him pull everything off–but first they have to break the bomb-maker Joe Bang (Craig) out of jail in broad daylight.
