Apple TV+ has now revealed the first look and release date of its much awaited all star feature film ‘Swan Song’. Helmed by Benjamin Cleary, who won Oscar for his short film ‘Stutterer’ and is making his feature directorial debut with ‘Swan Song’, the family drama will release in theaters and globally on Apple TV+ on 17th December, 2021.
‘Swan Song’ stars a great ensemble cast including two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, who turns producer with the film; eight-time Academy Award nominees Glenn Close and Naomie Harris; Golden Globe Award winner Awkwafina and Golden Globe Award nominee Adam Beach among others.
As per Apple, “Set in the near future, “Swan Song” is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief. As Cam grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. “Swan Song” explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.”
Touted as emotionally compelling and thought provoking, ‘Swan Song’ has an original screenplay written by Cleary and is bankrolled by Anonymous Content and Concordia Studio. The producers for Apple TV+’s ‘Swan Song’ are Adam Shulman (‘Defending Jacob’) and Jacob Perlin (‘The Amazing Johnathan Documentary’) for Anonymous Content; Jonathan King (‘Stillwater’, ‘Dark Waters) for Concordia Studio; Rebecca Bourke (‘Wave’); Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés (‘Hidden Figures’) for Know Wonder.
