Swallow – Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing


Posted November 24, 2021 by


Those lovely folks at Second Sight Films have been on fire recently, with stunningly luxurious Limited Edition releases of some of the finest – and often most under-appreciated – films of recent years. The latest entry in their catalogue is Carlo Mirabella-Davis’s hidden gem Swallow, an absorbing and unforgettable drama with a mesmerising performance from Haley Bennett (soon to be seen starring opposite Peter Dinklage in the highly-anticipated Cyrano). This disturbingly memorable film is presented here on Blu-ray with a stunning transfer and an array of insightful special features, alongside a fascinating booklet and art-cards. 

We took a closer look at this delicious release…

Director: Carlo Mirabella-Davis

Starring: Haley Bennett and Austin Stowell

A young woman appears to have the perfect life but faces mounting pressure from her domineering husband and his family to play the role of the dutiful wife.
