Azure Skye has been a reliable presence in indie film and TV for decades. But she's rarely gotten the chance for a starring role. The Swerve gives her that opportunity, earning her critical acclaim and several awards.
Skye plays Holly, a teacher and mother unraveling after a car accident. She's got bouts of insomnia, unwanted guests (rodents and humans) at her house, and a nagging conscience.
This marks the feature debut of writer-director Dean Kapsalis. The film debuted at Cinepocalypse last year, before getting picked up by Epic Pictures. It also played at the Panic Film Festival in Kansas City. Skye won Best Actress at both fests. Check out the trailer below.
The Swerve arrives on VOD and digital platforms on September 22.
