From the producers of The Rider and The Tale, and creative executive producer Joe Wright (Darkest Hour, Atonement), Swallow plays like a warped fairy tale, posing provocative questions about the expectations imposed on women, women’s control over their own bodies, and the psychologically damaging effects of patriarchal culture. Anchored by Bennett’s knockout performance, this bold and atmospheric film marks the feature directorial debut of Carlo Mirabella-Davis.
