SYNOPSIS

Hunter is a housewife who spends her days waiting for her husband and her nights waiting on him. One day, she learns she is pregnant, to the delight of everyone but her. As her body and life slip from her grip, she picks up a marble, and pushes it down her throat. She feels good. She feels in control. Then, she picks up a thumbtack.

Perhaps the highest praise this film has received is a viewer fainting at its Tribeca Film Festival screening. Inspired by an actual mental condition, Swallow promises a visceral experience—one part psychological thriller and one part feminist fable. Its unnerving atmosphere is rivalled only by the unsettling questions it poses about the ownership of women’s bodies in a patriarchal world.
