Swan Song (2021, D: Cleary) S: Mahershala Ali, Naomie Harris, Glenn Close, Akwafina



An impossible decision awaits. Watch Swan Song December 17 in theaters and streaming on Apple TV+

Set in the near future, Swan Song is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. As Cam grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.

This Apple Original Film stars two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris and eight-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close. The film also features Golden Globe winner Awkwafina and Golden Globe nominee Adam Beach. Swan Song is written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary and produced by Adam Shulman, Jacob Perlin, Jonathan King, Rebecca Bourke, Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés.

Shit, I saw this headline and thought it was going to be an adaption of Robert R. McCammon's novel, with Mahershala Ali playing Black Frankenstein.

This was a good movie with a great performance by Mahershala Ali.

Kevin Bacon liked this too when I read his interview in USA Weekend.

Sucks Lightyear gets a 40 page thread and this only two responses?

It's more about access. I couldn't see this since I don't have Apple TV.

Lightyear was a substantially better movie

This was essentially a good 45 minute episode of Black Mirror extended to nearly 2 hours. It's a chore to get through despite nice production values and solid acting.

You've said this before... 1. it is only 4 pages long and 2. it is irrelevant to whatever film you're talking about.

This film had a good performance from Ali, but it wasn't very good overall.

Exactly.

Dual had a similar concept, but was a more interesting film.

I think the stage is being set for the Anti-Christ and the Four Horseman to come to earth.

You must have really hated Lightyear and yeah it's 6 pages, not 40.

More happened and I didn't feel the overwhelming need for a nap during it.

Exactly the same thing I thought when I saw this thread title. Dammit.

Same here. Just recently read it for the first time and was excited to see an adaptation, so this was a let down.
