‘Combining a cool Hitchcock aesthetic with 70s-esque suburban paranoia and a modern narrative sensibility, Swallow is an intriguing, exciting feature debut… anchored by an astonishing performance by Hayley Bennett’
‘This is Bennett’s show… It’s a role you can imagine a young Isabelle Huppert playing, and there’s no higher praise than that’
‘A bold and unconventional thriller made real by the evolution of lead actress Haley Bennett from porcelain housewife to jagged-edged reactionary… striking debut’
Second Sight have released Carlo Mirabella-Davis’ visually stunning, critically acclaimed feature debut Swallow in a fantastic Limited Edition Blu-ray Box set release, complete with a slew of fascinating new bonus content.
Haley Bennett (Hillbilly Elegy) gives an outstanding performance as Hunter a young woman who on the surface appears to have it all, the handsome, successful husband, the idyllic house, and a baby on the way. But is her life as perfect as it seems?
As domineering husband Richie (Austin Stowell – Whiplash), and his overbearing family put pressure on Hunter to play the dutiful wife, she becomes overwhelmed and powerless. Desperate to reclaim control of her life and her identity, Hunter starts to swallow things… and as the compulsion increases the more dangerous the objects she ingests become… When a shocking revelation is exposed, it sets off an unstoppable chain of events that will shock to the very core. Also stars Denis O’Hare (Dallas Buyers Club), Elizabeth Marvel (Unbelievable), David Rasche (Succession) and Luna Lauren Velez (Dexter).
