Apple Original Films have revealed the release for the highly anticipated, futuristic film ‘Swan Song’ which will debut in select theatres and globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, December 17.
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.
The emotionally-charged film is written and directed by acclaimed Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary (‘Stutterer’) and features an ensemble of co-stars including eight-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close; Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris, Golden Globe Award winner Awkwafina and Golden Globe Award nominee Adam Beach.
‘Swan Song’ makes its Apple TV+ streaming debut on December 17, joining a strong lineup of Apple Original Films award contenders including Sundance hit ‘CODA,’ and upcoming features ‘Finch’ and ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth.’
