IFC Films has now announced the release date for writer-director Carlo Mirabella-Davis‘ award-winning, twisted thriller Swallow that explores the horrors of Pica.

Haley Bennett (The Magnificant Seven), Austin Stowell (Colossal), Elizabeth Marvel, David Rasche, and “American Horror Story” actor Denis O’Hare star in the official selection at 2019’s Tribeca Film Festival which took home the Best Actress in a U.S. Narrative Feature Film award.

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. A provocative and squirm-inducing psychological thriller, Swallow follows one woman’s unraveling as she struggles to reclaim independence in the face of an oppressive system by whatever means possible.
Mollye Asher, Mynette Louie, Carole Baraton, and Fredric Fiore produced with Haley Bennett, Joe Wright, Constantin Briest, Yohann Comte, Pierre Mazars, Eric Tavitian, and Sam Bisbee executive producing.
Swallow opens in theaters and arrives on Demand on March 6, 2020, from IFC Films.
