On Sunday morning, Variety hosted its annual 10 Actors to Watch panel at the Hamptons International Film Festival, with honorees Tye Sheridan (“The Tree of Life”), Kaitlyn Dever (“Laggies”) and Lola Kirke (“Gone Girl”).

After the Q&A hosted by Variety executive editor Steven Gaydos, the actors joined Hilary Swank at a brunch presented by Montblanc at the Maidstone Hotel. Swank received Variety’s Creative Impact in Acting Award.

“It’s truly an honor to be able to tell people stories in a couple of hours,” Swank said. “I became an actor because I love people. It gives me an opportunity to stretch myself, but it makes my life richer because of it.” Swank gave the young actors in attendance some advice. “I hope that you don’t ever feel afraid to fall on your face,” she said.

The panel featured stories about breaking into acting at an early age and navigating the tricky world of agents, managers and auditions.

Sometimes formulaic works.

“You’re Not You” has the classic ingredients of a made-for-TV weeper, but thanks to a fine screenplay, sure-handed direction and two beautiful performances, it becomes something more, something better.

Something that earns your heart.

Hilary Swank has never become a giant movie star, but there’s a reason she has two Academy Awards. When given the right material, she soars.

Swank plays Kate, a gifted classical pianist with a seemingly idyllic life. Her dashing husband (Josh Duhamel) dotes on her, she has marvelous friends, and she lives in a house suitable for the cover of Architectural Digest.

But after playing piano one night at a dinner party, Kate experiences a slight tremor in her hands — and unless you’ve never seen any movie, ever, you know when a character notices a minor affliction, it’s just the beginning of her troubles.

In “You’re Not You,” Hilary Swank’s portrayal of Kate, a gifted concert pianist with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is so intensely persuasive that once you’re engaged by her wrenching ordeal, you mostly forgive the movie’s emotional manipulation.

As everyone surely must know, thanks to the widely publicized ice bucket challenge to raise money for A.L.S. research, this progressive ailment — also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease — affects nerve cells in the brain that control voluntary muscle movement. As their condition worsens, patients have increasing difficulty walking, talking and breathing. Many die from respiratory failure. Ms. Swank’s meticulous, unsparing depiction of the symptoms, which can be excruciating to observe, seems to come from deep inside.
