The Swerve

The Swerve

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. (Are they even dreams?) And then there’s the mouse that appears in her home. This is the final blow that sends her spiraling out of control. In this haunting update on a classical tragedy, a new director that was raised with the films of Polanski, Hitchcock, and Bergman explores a week in the life of a woman on the verge and proposes his own version of catharsis.
