The controversial true story of Jeanne De La Motte Valois stars Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby), as a countess whose name and title were stripped from her by the Royal Family, leaving her penniless in the late 18th Century. Her fight to restore her name and proper place in society is filled with mystery, intrigue and desire, with an infamous diamond necklace at the center of it all. This touching and dramatic story was nominated for an Academy Award for Costume Design, and also stars Jonathan Pryce (Brazil, Ronin), Academy Award-winner Christopher Walken (Catch Me If You Can, Pulp Fiction), Joely Richardson (The Patriot, Return to Me) and Adrien Brody (Liberty Heights, The Jacket).
