Written and directed by Dean Kapsalis in his feature debut, the film follows Holly, who 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.
The cast for the film includes Azura Skye (Riverdale), who brought home awards for Best Actress at both the Cinepocalypse and Panic Film Festivals for her performance in the film, Bryce Pinkham (Proven Innocent), Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) and Zach Rand (Nurse Jackie).
“The Swerve is such a mesmerizing film from the perspective of someone we should call more often, Mom,” Yulissa Morales, Epic Pictures and Dread’s Director of Distribution, said in a statement. “A woman’s happiness is often an afterthought and it’s something so beautifully captured in this film.”
