Swallow (2020, D: Mirabella-Davis) - S: Haley Bennett, Austin Stowell, Denis O'Hare, Elizabeth Marvel





Opening in theaters and VOD March 6

Directed by: Carlo Mirabella-Davis
Starring: Haley Bennett, Austin Stowell, Denis O'Hare & Elizabeth Marvel

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 husbandís 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. A provocative and squirm-inducing psychological thriller, SWALLOW follows one womanís unraveling as she struggles to reclaim independence in the face of an oppressive system by whatever means possible.

This is playing on Showtime

I thought it was going to be a really weird horror movie but more of a drama

Saw it over the weekend on Showtime. Really bizarre, but I liked it. And filmed not far from where I grew up. I thought it looked like the Hudson River where their house was located, and indeed it was. Do a Google Map search of Felsen Lane in Highland NY, and you can see the house.
