INDIA. The global curated film streaming service MUBI has announced that Carlo Mirabella-Davis’ award-winning psychological thriller Swallow will be available to watch exclusively on the platform in India starting October 31, 2020.
Written and directed by Carlo Mirabella-Davis (Knife Point, The Swell Season), Swallow received its world premiere at Tribeca Film Festival and saw star Haley Bennett (The Girl On The Train, Hillbilly Elegy, The Devil All The Time) win the Best Actress award. Bennett also served as an executive producer on film. Austin Stowell (Whiplash), Elizabeth Marvel (Lincoln, Homeland, Fargo), David Rasche (Succession, Veep) and Denis O’Hare (Big Little Lies) also star alongside Bennett.
Swallow tells the story of Hunter (Haley Bennett), a newly pregnant woman whose idyllic existence takes an alarming turn when she develops a compulsion to eat dangerous objects. As her husband (Austin Stowell) and his family tighten their control over her life, she is forced to confront the dark secret behind her uncontrollable obsession.
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.
