The film’s absurdly strong performances, music, and aesthetics all bring to life a wonderful film you won’t want to miss. Do yourselves a favor, and buy a ticket when it comes your way.

Melodies like this find magic in the familiar. The Song Of Sway Lake is a film built around American archetypes.
