Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank talk The Homesman at Cannes



Slacker Sunday brings you this press conference from The Cannes Film Festival. Tommy Lee Jones directed the western The Homesman based on the book by Glenn Swarthout about a claim jumper and a pioneer woman team up to escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa. The film stars Tommy Lee Jones along with Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer, John Lithgow, Meryl Streep, Susanne Richter and Miranda Otto. This isn't Jones' first foray as a director and it was a kick to see Jones who I think of as such a quiet curmudgeon talking with passion about the project. And he clearly has a passion for the American frontier and for the challenging beginnings of this country. Enjoy!

  1. Intriguing to see a French producer connected with this very American kind of movie. I love the way the interviewer pronounces 'il-ar-ee (Hilary). Great clip. Thanks for taking us to Cannes and for playing along. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
