Marina Antunes [Celluloid 01.29.20] horror drama

They say truth is stranger than fiction and in the case of pica, that's certainly true. The eating disorder, which refers to individuals who consume nonfood items, is at the centre of Carlo Mirabella-Davis' feature film debut Swallow.

Haley Bennett (Hardcore HenryThe Hole), stars as Hunter, a young woman who has recently married into a well-to-do family and from the early stages of her marriage, she's on the outside of the family. Her in-laws see her as a gold digger and they take every opportunity to remind her that she's not one of them.

As a means to get some semblance of control over her life, Hunter begins to swallow items but as her pica gets more serious, the worse her life spirals out of her control.

Along with Bennett, the film also co-stars Austin Stowell and Denis O'Hare.

I love a good psychological thriller and Swallow, with its comparisons to David Fincher, certainly seems like the kind of woman-on-the-verge-of-a-meltdown type of film that I love.

The film premiered to solid reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival last year and has been playing the festival circuit ever since.

Swallow will be available in theatres and on VOD on March 6.

Recommended Release: Birth
