Following its run on the festival circuit, IFC Films is bringing the genre-bending feminist thriller Swallow, written and directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis, to select theaters and digital and VOD on March 6th, and today sees the release of the film's official trailer, which can be viewed below.
"A provocative and squirm-inducing psychological thriller, Swallow follows one woman’s unraveling as she struggles to reclaim independence in the face of an oppressive system by whatever means possible."
In the film, "On the surface, Hunter (Haley Bennett) appears to have it all. A newly pregnant housewife, she seems content to spend her time tending to an immaculate home and doting on her Ken-doll husband, Richie (Austin Stowell). However, as the pressure to meet her controlling in-laws and husband’s rigid expectations mounts, cracks begin to appear in her carefully created facade. Hunter develops a dangerous habit, and a dark secret from her past seeps out in the form of a disorder called pica - a condition that has her compulsively swallowing inedible, and oftentimes life-threatening, objects."
David Rasche ("Succession") and Denis O'Hare ("True Blood") also star.
Joe Wright, the director of Darkest Hour and Atonement, served as an active creative executive producer on the film.
