This is pretty exciting. We finally know what Hilary Swank was doing in town when we saw all those pictures of her helping an Albany woman find her lost dog. Hilary was filming a movie written by two Albany natives and directed by one of those Albany natives. The films is called "Mother's Milk" and it is actually set in Albany. That means Albany is not doubling for another place, but the movie will actually show Albany in all it's glory and it's lack of glory. The movie was written by Albany native Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and co-written with his boyhood pal, Madison Harrison, and directed by Joris-Peyrafitte. It stars Hilary Swank (obviously), as a Times Union reporter/recovering alcoholic. It is set in 2016 and it's about the drug epidemic that was taking over Albany and the country at the time. Swank's character is the mother of two sons, one who is an Albany police offer and one who is a drug dealer. Of course, there's no word yet on when the movie will be released. There is a LOT of post production work that goes into making a movie, but I cannot wait to see it. First off, we always want to support home town folks who make good. Secondly, the movie sounds like it's going to be fantastic. Let's keep our fingers crossed that we can actually get a premiere for the film here in Albany. That would be very cool. We'll see how it all goes down, but for now we know that Albany will be taking center stage in a new movie starring two time Oscar winner Hilary Swank! I'm all in!
