Hilary Swank Pictures: Museum of the Moving Image Salutes Clint Eastwood Invictus Screening Photos

Hilary Swank Pictures: Hilary Swank attends a screening of "Invictus" as part of the Museum of the Moving Image's salute to Clint Eastwood at the Paris Theatre on December 1, 2009 in New York City.

The true story of how Nelson Mandela joined forces with the captain of South Africa's rugby team, Francois Pienaar, to help unite their country. Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.

"Invictus," starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, opens in theaters nationwide on December 11.
