Review

the “demanding behavior” that merits “swallow” its r rating begins innocently enough. newly pregnant hunter (haley bennett) chomps on glassy cubes of ice at a celebratory dinner along with her husband, richie (austin stowell), and his wealthy mother and father (elizabeth wonder and david rasche), however from there she develops a desire to consume inedible gadgets that fast escalates.

in her pearls, blond bob and ’50s-esque full skirts, hunter looks as if the picture-perfect housewife. she is, however, desperate for manipulate of her personal frame and to feel something in a house she stocks with a husband who doesn’t listen to her. quickly, she graduates to gulping down a marble, then a pushpin, accompanied by way of even larger, sharper matters that disappear past her lips.

in its fashion and issues, “swallow”conjures up todd haynes’ “secure” and “some distance from heaven” and, of course, the melodramas of douglas sirk, with its saturated shades, midcentury furniture and tale of a female who will attempt whatever to get away her life. as hunter, bennett is an absolute surprise, alternately candy, unhappy and surprising in her portrayal of this complex individual, who appears like a actual person.

author-director carlo mirabella-davis has made a feminist film that inns deep for your throat, taking over residence to your chest as you warfare to breathe. at instances, you’re unable to accept as true with what you’re seeing and but unable to appearance away. “swallow” is difficult viewing at instances, however it’s psychologically wealthy and usually feels true, even in its gorgeously stylized method to the indoors existence of its complicated protagonist.
