Swallow (2019) - full transcript

Hunter, a newly pregnant housewife, finds herself increasingly compelled to consume dangerous objects. As her husband and his family tighten their control over her life, she must confront the dark secret behind her new obsession.

Attention, please.
Your attention, please.

Um, I hate to pull you away
from your lamb and cabernet

but I just want to make
a quick announcement

about my son, Richie.

Tonight, we are making him
the youngest managing director

in the history
of our little company.

Well done, kiddo.
You earned it.

Well done. Come on.
Stand up, Richie.

Come on.
Get up there.

You know, I... I couldn't
have done any of this

without my beautiful bride,

She is, and has been,

so giving, selfless..

Well, she is the light
of my life.


Oh, uh, my folks bought us
a house

so thank you very much
for the house.

You're radiant, you're blessed,
you're inspiring.

Keep on shining
with new Oradine

Whitening Toothpaste
and teeth strips.

Our enamel protection
technology allows you

to eat whatever you want
and keep smiling.


Wow! Look at you!

Did you miss me?


This is great.

I think there's room
for a flower bed out back..

...near the pool.

I'd like to plant some
if that's okay.

Oh, yeah?
What kind of flowers?

Tiger Lilies, Tulips,
Morning Glories.

Sorry, babe. One second.

- I just gotta respond to this.
- Okay. Sure.

It's a great name
for a flower, isn't it?

Morning Glories.

Like the glory
of an awesome morning.

I like mornings more
and more these days.

This house has great light.

I feel so lucky.


I feel so lucky.


Ma, we're pregnant.



I know.

I will.

Ah.. Wow!

Wow! Wow!



- Whoo!
- There we are.

Darling, what a day!

- Yeah, yeah, this is fun.
- Good news!

- Hi, sweetheart.
- Hi.

Look at this.

The future CEO of our company,
right here.

Right here.

I was in labor
for 30 hours with Richie.

He didn't wanna come out.
He had it made in there.

Thirty hours.
And then, he was born blue.

- Blue?
- Slate blue.

We all thought he was dead

but then he started
breathing and crawling.

And sucking on the cat's tail.

- What?
- Yes. Yes.

Uh, apparently, I prefer
the cat's tail to my pacifier.

The cat's tail was always wet.

You know, Hunter
was a crazy kid, too.

Tell them about the, uh..
What was it?

The... the guy on the side
of the road who, uh..

- Yeah, yeah, yeah. Tell it.
- That's not...

Do it. It's good. It's good.

Come on.

- This is great.
- Ha-ha-ha!

It's not really a story.

Um, there was this guy

kind of this local nutcase

and he would stand
on the side of the road

into town and he would
blow kisses

at all the cars passing by.

And at first, he scared me

because he had this beard

and dirty hair and bad teeth.

Uh, it was like this
religious calling or something.

- He had to blow...
- Oh, by the way, Richie..

Uh, before I forget, um, how was
it left with the Carver people?

They sent over the contracts
and it's being e-signed

because one of the partners
is in Africa

on a safari or something
like that.

As of when? I didn't know.
I wasn't aware of this.

- Apparently, he took the kid.
- Really?

- There he is..
- I didn't know about that.

Closing the deal.

Alright. Gotta keep up
on these things.

Yeah, I... I'll... I'll email
him f... first thing Monday.

- Okay. Good.
- I'll get right on it.

He's on safari. No, really.

Oh, oh, well,
if he's on safari...

- No, I mean it. I mean it.
- I know.

- Okay, fine.
- But he's, I mean, he's out..

It's not like you get internet.

...the Sahara somewhere.

It's fine. I don't care.

I don't think there's anything
to worry about.


This ice is totally awesome.

- Aah!
- Sorry, darling.

I let myself in.

- You gave me such a fright.
- Obviously.

I just wanted
to bring this over.

Self-help book.

I read it when I was pregnant

and it really helped
with the postpartum.

Oh, my gosh.
I love it.

I'm making lunch.

Grilled cheese sandwiches
and tomato soup.

- Can you stay?
- Oh!

- I wish I could.
- I can make something else.

No, no, no. Don't bother.
I better be going.

You would look
so pretty with long hair.

You should grow it out.

Richie likes his girls
with long, beautiful hair.

What are you so happy about?

I'm proud of myself.

I did something unexpected


You promise you won't laugh
if I tell you?

Promise I won't laugh.


...the drapes

I chose sky blue drapes
for the theater.

Oh. Cool.

That's not so unexpected.

You sure that's
the right color, though?

It's a little hipster.

I think it works.

And you said
that I could choose.

I did. And you can.
Of course you can.

It's up to you.
I like unexpected.

Come here.

Do I make you happy?

I'm the happiest man
in the whole world.

I love everything about you.
Every little thing.

You're not mad at me?

About what? The drapes?

I don't know.

I just wanna make sure
I'm not doing anything wrong.

You're not.

You couldn't do anything wrong

even if you tried.


Okay, okay, okay.


Babe, did you iron this tie?



It was wrinkled.

You can't iron a tie like this.

It'll permanently damage
the silk.

It has to be steamed.

You see?

Oh, shoot. I'm sorry.

Do you have another tie
you can wear?

Not one that goes
with this shirt.


Now what the hell am I gonna do?

It's okay.

New Medical evidence
suggests that

consuming your placenta
after giving birth

can level off your hormones,
increase milk production

and lower chances
of postpartum depression.

Your placenta can be dried out
and converted

into daily dietary supplements.



I'll be right over!


Good. Great.

I wanted to be an artist too,
you know.

- Really?
- Mm.

Well, an actress.


I could see that.
You're a knockout.

Thank you.
So are you.

Thank you.

So what did you do for money
before you met my son?

Retail, mostly.

- Selling things in a shop?
- Yeah.

Selling what?

- Toiletries.
- Oh!

Bubble bath, body wash.


Well, lucky break
you meeting my son.


I would go to these
illustration job, um..

...advertising interviews

and, and it wasn't like
they were gonna hire me anyway.

I'm just real grateful..

...to Richie and you guys

for providing me some solid
ground to stand on, you know?

Plus I have so much
free time now

for drawing and whatever.

The best advice
anyone ever gave me was

"Fake it till you make it."

Are you a faker
or have you made it?

I'm sorry?

Are you happy or are you
pretending to be happy?

I'm happy.

- Hey. Hi. Hi, hi.
- What's going on?

No, no, no.
No, no, I was..

Are you trying to convince us
how drunk you actually are?

- I got this.
- I'm as sober as long as a..

Good thing I was the one
to drive you over..

- Yeah, man. So sexy!
- Yeah, get in there, my man.

- Ow!
- Let's go.

Just a minute!

Hey, babe?
What's going on in there?


What's wrong?
You're trembling.

Nothing. I'm okay.


- I'll be right down.
- Okay.

- Not a chance. Not a chance.
- Get out of here.

No way. No way.
You're in cuffs.

You don't even need
a breathalyzer.

You're in cuffs.
You're done. You're done.

Who's up next?
Who's up next?

Just like, just like you're
back in boot camp there.

What happened?

- What?
- You're damp.


Yeah. Sorry.

Yeah, I'm Aaron.
I work with Richard.

I'm Hunter.
I'm married to Richard.


- For what?
- The baby.

Oh. Yeah.

Hey, can I have a hug?

- What?
- A... a hug.

W... will you hug me?


Because I'm not drunk enough
to ask for a kiss.

- I'm Richie's wife, remember?
- So, it's..

It's just a hug.

One hug, hon.

I'm lonely.

Okay, come here.

- Thank you.
- You're welcome.

Oh, look at that.


It looks like there's
something else inside there.

- What?
- What do you mean?

It's just a glitch.
Let me move the...


Richie! Richie!

- Richie, where are you?
- I'm..

- This isn't necessary! I'm fine!
- I'm... I'm right here!

- I'm fine!
- Hunter, I'm right here!

What is wrong with you?

Really. Really. I... I am trying
to understand, alright?

Why? Why? Why would you do
something like this?

I mean, what the fuck
is wrong with you?

- I don't know.
- You do.

I don't know.

I just..

I wanted to do it,
and so I did it.

Oh, that's a great excuse.

I've never even heard
of this pica thing.

- Just stop raising your voice!
- You know what?

This is the kind of thing that
you're supposed to tell

somebody about
before you get married.

You should've told me
about this.

I didn't know about it!

Oh, that's such bullshit,

Alright? Don't fucking lie to me
like that!

I'm so sorry.

I've never done
anything like this before.

I can't, I can't help it.

Shit! Damn it!

Just what the fuck
is wrong with you?

These stupid fucking rocks.

Yeah, sure. Just have me
fucking paying for everything.

That's fine.
You don't know why.

No, you're just sitting here
at home all day

making scrapbooks and picking
out fucking curtains.

Well, I would think
medication first, right, Alice?

I mean, just to settle her down.

I don't wanna tell you
how to do your job

but I am paying for this,
so results. We want results.

I think
it might be better if

I met with Hunter alone
for a bit.

Ah, no.
No, I... I'm gonna stay.

Yeah, just to make sure
that she's..

I'm okay. Really.

- Alright.
- Okay.

We'll be right outside.

Do you want to lie down?

Can I just... have
the medication?

We can try Celexa
or... or Wellbutrin. Sure.

But talking is important, too.

Are you reluctant to talk
about your parents?

It's just a waste of time.

They were good to me.

I had a normal childhood.

My family loved me very much.
End of story.

I just wanna stop eating stuff
so I can make Richie happy

and we can go back
to our life together.

How does it make you feel
when you swallow something?

I don't know.

Good, I guess.

In what way?

I just like the textures
in my mouth.

I like the way they feel
in my mouth.

Mattress stuffing..

...ice, metal
cold metal, especially.

Junk like that.

Does the pain bother you?

Some of the objects you swallowed are,
are quite sharp.

Okay. Let's start juicing.

We're gonna make you a daily

fruit and vegetable drink
with lots of iron.

You see, your brain
and your body are connected.

But right now,
your body's starving

so it is sending the wrong
signal to the brain

about what it wants to eat.

So we are going to reconnect

the mind and the body.

Yeah. Totally.


Hey, babe.

I'm gonna steal you
for a second.

- We're juicing.
- Oh, yeah.

There's somebody
I want you to meet.


- Come on.
- I'll be right back.

- Okay.
- Come on.

- Who is it?
- Oh, you'll see.

- He's just downstairs.
- Oh.

Hi. Nice to meet you.
I'm Luay.

- Hi, Louie.
- Luay.

Who is he?

Luay's gonna be helping you out
around the house.

He's a nurse.
A live-in nurse.

He's great with memaw.
Very sensitive.

Doing what, exactly?

I'm not a senior citizen.

Look, I gotta work.
I can't be here 24/7.

So he's here
to keep an eye on me?

No, he's here as a resource.

If you're tired,
he can cook for you.

He can go to the store
and get you things.

What, is he gonna be
pulling stuff out of my hands?

Okay, okay.
Just relax, babe, okay?

Mom? Mom, can you come
and explain this, please?

This was your idea and I just...
can't deal with this right now.

You know, I had help around
the house when I was pregnant.

It really takes
the pressure off.

Plus, you're still recovering

from your little stay
in the hospital.

Honey, Luay is the best
there is.

Help us help you.

Oh, I can do it.

I can do it!

Mr. Richie wants me to help you.

I can cook just fine.

I wanna cook my
husband's dinner by myself.

Go watch TV or something.


So where are you from?


Syria, not Pittsburgh.

Why'd you leave?



Where are you from?

East Meredith.
Upstate New York.

No war there.

Just trees and cows
and farms and stuff.

If you were in war, you would
not have this problem of the mind.

No time for mind problems
when you're being shot at.

I have to go
to the bathroom now.

Please, miss.

You know what they want, okay?

You know
what I'm supposed to do.

Okay, go.

The hospital sent over a report
detailing the contents of your stomach.

It said you swallowed a battery.

It's just so not a big deal.

Everyone is making
a big deal about it.

Yes, I did some things
that I shouldn't have.

Well, a battery seems like
a big deal.

If it leaked inside your stomach

the acid could've killed you.

That concerns me.

A needle, a rock, a battery.

Why those objects?

I don't know.

It made me feel..

...in control.

Do you feel out of control?

Oh, um, there was something

that I wanted
to tell you about, um..

...my mom and our relationship
and stuff.

You know what?
Never mind.


It's Richie's birthday.
I really have to go.


- Hi, birthday boy.
- Hi, babe.

- Hi, Hunter. Great party.
- Hi, Sara. How are you?

Great party.

- Hi, Lauren.
- Hi.

- I love your dress.
- Hunter..

I love what you've done
with the place.

Look at these sandwiches.
They're hilarious.

- Have one.
- Oh, no, no, no. Get those away from me.

If I eat anymore I'm gonna
have to get my stomach pumped.

Oh, my God. Hunter.

Sweetie, I'm so sorry.
I didn't..

- I'm such an idiot. I didn't..
- What?

I wasn't even thinking,
and I just...

No, no, no. Bev, Bev.

Don't even, don't even
worry about it.

It's fine. It's fine.
Really, it's okay.

And we're doing great.

Yeah, H... Hunter's made
a lot of progress, and..

- Right.
- Uh..

My mom's got her on a new diet.

- Right?
- Mm. What diet?


Lots of... iron and fiber.

- Mm. That's so healthy.
- And fish and...

- Right.
- Right, right. Yeah.

- You look great.
- Doesn't she?

- I know. I love diets.
- Yeah.

She made all my favorites.


I'd rather no one know.

Are you mad at me?

Hon, e... everybody here cares.
They care big time.

Y... your food's a big hit.
It's a huge hit.

You should be happy about that.


I can't believe
you fucking told them.

Okay, can you please
not ruin my birthday?

We'll talk about this later.

- Hey.
- Hey.

Can I, uh..

Can I have a hug?

I'm lonely.

Are you okay, miss?

Yes, thank you.


Let me know
if you need anything.

I... I'll be right outside.


I didn't finish.

Say you're sorry..

...for the party..

...telling everyone
at the office.

I'm sorry. I am, honey.

This hasn't been easy on me,

I needed the support.

Do you still love me

Of course.


Yes, I do.

And I'm gonna try harder
to understand

to be more understanding.


I love you too.

I'm sorry I'm such a freak.

But you're my freak.

You're my little freak.

Let's get back to your family
for a minute.


I told you they were normal.

In last session,
you hinted at some type of

issue with your mom.

Oh, gosh.

I guess you want me to tell you
about the whole rape thing.

What whole rape thing?


If I tell you... if..

...you have to promise that you're
not gonna make a big deal about it.

I promise.

So my father
isn't really my father.

My mom was raped in the '90s
by some random guy

and I was the result,
you know?

Did they ever catch the guy?

Yeah. He did time.

William Erwin was his name

is his name.

Do you wanna see
a picture of him?

Oh, no. Not really.

No, look.


That's him.

Y... you carry that around
with you?


I've dealt with it.

How have you dealt with it?

I've thought about it a lot.

Did your mother ever consider
terminating the pregnancy?

My mom is... this right-wing
religious nut.

She's really sweet.

My family doesn't believe in..

...abortion even in the cases

of incest or rape

so here I am.

But my stepdad
was really nice to me.

And my mom was never
resentful or anything.

My sisters love me.

How did it happen?

She went to a bar
and he bought her a drink.

My mom left

and he followed her home

and he broke in.

That's all I know.

Can we change the subject?

I think this is important,

I think this might have a lot
to do with your compulsion.


We're at the end of our session.

See you in a couple days.

That color looks
really nice on you.

Oh, thank you.

See you soon.

I love you.

I love you too.


Come here.


Hello? This is Richard.

...connected to her past.

What do you mean
about her past?

I... I think
her life is in danger.

She can't overcome
a guilt complex

without your love
and acceptance.

No, no, no, no.
What about her past?

Please, you have to tell me.

I can't say.
Just ask her.

Listen, we had a deal, okay?

You're supposed to tell me


If you won't tell me,
I don't want her seeing you anymore.

It has to do with a rape.


Are you there?


No, I'm here.

So as I understand

Hunter's father
raped her mother

and she is the product
of that crime.


Did she say anything to you
about this?

Did she mention anything?

No, I... I didn't know.

No, I... I understand.

Ah, there you are.

I'm off to the gym.

I'm... I'm gonna get you
something today.

Whatever you want. You
want a... a dress or necklace?

You name it, it's yours.

A bracelet?

Bracelet. Bracelet.
Oh, okay.


Oh, shit.

Oh, fucking shit.

Holy shit.


You alright?

I'm under the bed.
Go away.

You seem upset.

No shit, Sherlock.

Please come out.
Mr. Richie wouldn't like this.


It's very dusty here.

Maybe I'll clean later.

Maybe I'll clean the whole room.

You're safe here.

You're safe.

Miss! Miss!

No. Miss.

Sweetie, look.

Look how nice this is, huh?

We can't keep our eyes on you
24/7, and they can.

Can I stay here with Richie
and you guys?

I'm better now.
Really, I am.

I know I went too far.

I know I did.

It was just a game.

A stupid game.

- I know it went too far.
- No.

You have to go there
so you can get better.

And if she won't go,
Richie wants a divorce.

It's just seven months.

So sign the paper, sweetie.


That's a good girl.

Are we going now?

Yeah. Hey, you want to
get some things together?

They're, they're waiting for us.

I forgot my charger.
It's in my room somewhere.

Oh, you're not gonna
need your phone there.

I want my phone.
It's got my games on it.

- Okay, I can go get it.
- I'll get it.

I'm not a baby.

It's okay.
I checked it.

Oh, please.

Open the door.


- Oh, God. Okay.

Move, move!

Hey, please! Stop!
Stop! Stop! Stop!

Stop. Please, stop.

Come on, please don't be a jerk.

Come on! Hey, stop!
Stop! Stop!

Hi. Oh!

- Thank you!
- Sure.

- Thank you!
- Where are you going?

Ah! Where are you?

I just wanted to explain.

I still have feelings
for you, and..


I think I rushed into some stuff
to make you happy..

...like where we live and..

...the baby.

- I wanted to make you happy..
- No. No, look.

- And I just..
- Shh. Shh. Shh. Shh.

Just listen, okay?

I really, really miss you.

I miss us.

You know, I've been..

I... I want things to go back

the way it used to be.

Just come back.

I swear, things
are... are gonna be different.

We can go anywhere
that you want to. Just..

I love you.

I miss you, too.

So come back.


I can't.

So what are you gonna do?
You gonna..

You gonna live on the street?

You're not good at anything.

You can't do anything.

This is it.

This is the best it is
ever going to get.

Come back.

You come back
or I will hunt you down.

I'll fucking hunt you down,
you ungrateful cunt.

Okay. I have to go.

You get back here with my kid!

Treasure the little things.

I'll meet you on the train.

No. I'm not going.

What the hell
are you talking about?

Wait? Wait for what?

For a sign.

There are signs all around us

hidden in the woodwork.

You just have to know
where to look.

It'll tell you what you do

it'll tell you who you are.

I've never heard of anything
so ludicrous in all my life.

Well, go on.
Stay here if you want.

Sit here the rest of your life
if you want to.

I'm getting on that train.

No, thank you.
I'm checking out.

Hi, mom. What's up?

Hi, honey.
Nice to hear your voice.

Uh... listen.

I need to come see you.

It's kind of an emergency.

Of course.

It'll be good for us
to spend some time together.


You want me to?

Sure, doll.

You're always welcome.

It's just your sister's here
with the new baby

and it's a little bit crowded.


I won't get in the way.

There's just no room, doll.

Nice job.

Thank you.

You have your daughter's eyes.

No, she has my wife's eyes.

My eyes are hazel.

So are mine.


We've met before, haven't we?

I know your face,
but I can't place it.


- Oh, we need a bit more punch.
- Oh.

Oh, hi. I'm sorry.

I'm Lucy. What's your name?


Hi, I'm William.

Uh, everybody calls me Erwin.

So which one of these kids
is yours?

None of them, but I...
I'm gonna have a baby soon.

- I'm pregnant.
- Oh. Congratulations!

That's wonderful!

Can I.. Can I help you
with some of this?

- No, no, no.
- Oh, no, no, no.

It's just, you know..

No, that's okay.
You don't have to.

It's my pleasure.

Oh, you really
don't have to do that.

It's no trouble at all.

- Ah.. Yep.
- Okay.

Thank you.

So Hunter,
who invited you to the party?

I, uh..


You remember Jill McCoy, right?

She's my mom.

Lucy, do you have
a recycling bin or something?

Oh, yeah. I'll take those.
It's under the sink.

I'm sorry. Jill who?

- McCoy.
- She's an old friend of mine.

I.. Well, I haven't seen her
in years.

Hey, Brat. Why don't you go
and play with your pals.

Oh, you never mentioned
any Jill.

Oh, uh..

- Jill.
- Oh! Yeah. She, uh, she..

I, her mom,
I went to high school with her.

Yeah. Coming back to me now.
I ran into Jill last week.

She said that her daughter,
uh, might

you know, stop by the party.

Or rather,
she and her daughter.

So I guess your mom
couldn't make it, huh?


No, she got held up.

So, so, what do you want?

Um, soda? You want p... punch?

I don't know.

I haven't decided yet.

Can I show Hunter my room?

No. No, honey.

You gotta go to bed.
It's past your bedtime.


Oh, come on. Here.

And you're in charge
of the grill, okay?

- Okay. Yeah. Alright.
- We need burgers and hot dogs.

Okay. Sure, babe.


...are you gonna ruin my life
or what?

I haven't decided yet.

I guess I should, right?

- Don't touch me!
- Keep your voice down.

I will do whatever the fuck
I want!

I make the rules here.

I'm in charge, okay?

Say it.

Say it.

Okay. You're in charge.

Hey, where are those burgers?
We're famished.

Roger that!

- Join us outside, kids.
- Yeah.

No, we'll be there in a minute.
We're just.. Just..

- Can you give us a minute?
- Okay.

Okay. We're good.

Why'd you do it?

I can't explain that.

I was delusional. I mean,
there's no way to explain that.

I... I was..

It made me feel special.

A secret makes you strong,
you know?

Everybody thought I was
this regular guy, you know

but I was important inside.

I was fucking powerful.

I was God.

And, um..

...and then I went to jail

and I got shit-bagged in jail.

Yeah, they beat me so bad
I had to wear a colostomy bag

and then I realized who I was.

I was not God.

I was shit.

Are you ashamed of me?


But what I did..

...I'm ashamed of that.

Am I like you?

I don't know.

Are you?


But I just need to
hear you say it.

You're not me.


You didn't do anything.

You didn't do anything wrong.

It's not your fault.

Take one pill here

wait 24 hours..

...then place the remaining
four pills in your mouth

two in each cheek.

Wait for them to dissolve,
then swallow the remnants.
