About this movie

A provocative and acclaimed psychological thriller, 'Swallow' follows one woman’s unravelling as she struggles to reclaim independence in the face of an oppressive system by whatever means possible. On the surface, Hunter (Haley Bennett) appears to have it all. A newly pregnant housewife, she seems content to spend her time tending to an immaculate home and doting on her Ken-doll husband, Richie (Austin Stowell). However, as the pressure to meet her controlling in-laws and husband’s rigid expectations mounts, cracks begin to appear in her carefully created facade. Hunter develops a dangerous habit, and a dark secret from her past seeps out in the form of a disorder called pica – a condition that has her compulsively swallowing inedible, and oftentimes life-threatening, objects.

Was so looking forward to seeing this film as I loved Haley Bennett in Girl on a Train. This film didn't disappoint, it's so aesthetically pleasing from the sets to the outfits she wears and the way the movie is shot. The twist was totally unexpected and to see someone so oppressed whose life wasn't her own take the reigns was a joy to watch. Loved it and may the fantastic talent that is Haley Bennett get the recognition she so deserves for this !
