After “Bandits”, von Garnier made her American debut with the HBO television movie “Iron Jawed Angels” (2004), which was about the life of US feminist Alice Paul and the women’s rights movement. Under her direction, Hilary Swank and Anjelica Huston earned a Best Actress Golden Globe nomination and a Best Supporting Actress Golden Globe Award, respectively. Her first American-made feature film, “Blood and Chocolate” was released on January 26, 2007, and starred Agnes Bruckner and Hugh Dancy.
