Epic Pictures has unveiled the official poster, trailer, and release date for their recent acquisition of THE SWERVE. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Personally, this film utterly wrecked me, so be prepared.
Holly seems to have it all: two kids, a nice house, a good job as a teacher, and a husband with his career on the way up. But there are troubling signs that all is not right in her world. The insomnia. The medication for the insomnia. The dreams from the medication for the insomnia. The arrival of her estranged sister and a mouse invading her home don’t help either. Add the weight of a dark secret, and her already delicate balance collapses, sending her spiraling out of control.
With her riveting and acclaimed performance as Holly, Azura Skye effortlessly crafts a portrait of a struggling mother on the edge. Writer/director Dean Kapsalis’s powerfully heart-wrenching feature debut explores a week in the life of a woman on the verge in this haunting meditation on mental illness.
THE SWERVE celebrated its world premiere at the 2019 Cinepocalypse Film Festival, and screened at the 2019 Panic Film Festival; winning both awards for Best Actress for Azura Skye.
“THE SWERVE is such a mesmerizing film from the perspective of someone we should call more often, Mom. A woman’s happiness is often an afterthought and it’s something so beautifully captured in this film.” – Yulissa Morales, Epic Pictures and Dread’s Director of Distribution.
The film stars Azura Skye (One Missed Call, What We Do Is Secret), Bryce Pinkham (“Mercy Street”, “Proven Innocent”), Ashley Bell (Psychopaths, Dear Guest), and Zach Rand (The Woman, Shooting The Prodigal).
THE SWERVE will be releasing on major VOD and Digital platforms beginning Tuesday, September 22, 2020.
