Hilary Swank, the two-time Oscar winner american actress will be guest of the fifth edition of the Ischia Global Fest.

The talented protagonist of cult films like Boys Don't Cry and Million Dollar Baby will receive the Legend Award by Regione Campania on July 11 in the town of Lacco Ameno. After celebrating the fact that she received star number 2325 on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Hilary Swank will arrive on the "Green Island" during a break from her many commitments on the set as well as her new role as producer.
Her last film was the supernatural thriller The Reaping, whereas the comedy P.S. I Love You, where she co-stars with Scottish superstar Gerard Butler, (protagonist of the hit film of the year 300), is due out at the end of the year.
Swank will then return to horror with Fangland, based on the novel by John Marks and set in a TV studio invaded by vampires. But the big news in the career of the ex-child prodigy of Hollywood is her work producing Laws of Motion, a comedy in which she stars with Matthew Perry, who played the character Chandler in the legendary TV series Friends.
In 2008 Swank will be the protagonist of the thriller Labyrinth, where she plays a woman with multiple personalities who is hunting down a mysterious serial killer.
