At the top of a mountain, forty miles from the power grid, Lemon Cassidy manages to scratch out a humble living for her family. When her reckless husband, Tarlee, doesn’t come home several days, she begins to suspect the worst. Armed with only her wits and tenacity, she navigates the strange and dangerous world she lives in while attempting to stay within the boundaries of this society’s strict Creed, where crimes are punished by chopping off body parts.

Climate of the Hunter | Directed by Mickey Reece

Reece’s narratives and characters are complicated and so very human. And, just as you settle into his film, he tilts it “wonderfully off its axis”. Two sisters come to their remote house to reconnect with a friend after twenty years. When the three get together for dinner it has all the makings of a lovely adult melodrama about loneliness and the desire to connect. But then, Reece adds to the mix: Wesley could be a vampire.

Hunter (Haley Bennett) is a newly pregnant woman whose idyllic existence takes an alarming turn when she develops a compulsion to eat dangerous objects. As her husband (Austin Stowell) and his family tighten their control over her life, she is forced to confront the dark secret behind her uncontrollable obsession. From the producers of “The Rider” and “The Tale”, and executive producer Joe Wright (“Darkest Hour”), SWALLOW plays like a warped fairy tale. Anchored by Bennett’s knockout performance, this bold and atmospheric film marks the feature directorial debut of Carlo Mirabella-Davis. TICKETS
