Watch: Hilary Swank Rescues Tommy Lee Jones in 'The Homesman' Trailer

For his directorial debut, Tommy Lee Jones brings us “The Homesman,” based on Glendon Swarthout’s novel of the same name. The film tells the story of claim jumper George Briggs (Jones), whose life is saved by Mary Bee Cuddy (Hilary Swank). As repayment for the favor, Cuddy asks Briggs to help her bring three insane women across state lines — from Nebraska to Iowa.
