Look at that poster!
Nice. In The Reaping, Hilary plays a former Christian missionary who travels to Louisiana to investigate reports of biblical plagues that do not involve FEMA. For those of you who (inexplicably) loathed Million Dollar Baby and divorced yourself from its star after her "I'm just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream" speech, The Reaping must be a plague all its own. Is this where everyone concludes Swank is a hack? Or will she excel in another trailer-trashy role? I happen to think she's a fine actress, though I have seen neither The Core nor The Affair of the Necklace. But I say it's high time for a pestilential blockbuster. Can't wait!
