Despite her personal challenges, Swank continued to work hard. In Freedom Writers (2007), Swank played a teacher trying to inspire her troubled urban students through writing. She also served as an executive producer on the film. Trying her hand at romantic comedy, Swank starred opposite Gerald Butler in the critically panned P.S. I Love You. Hopes were high for her portrayal of aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart in Amelia (2009),
but the film proved to be another critical and commercial disappointment.

For the upcoming drama, Betty Anne Waters, Swank plays a single mom who goes to law school to help get her brother released from prison. She is also serving as an executive producer of this film adaptation of a true story.
