A totally charming and bittersweet comedy starring Udo Kier in a career-defining role as the magnificent hairdresser on a mission. Swan Song is a favourite with critics and festival audiences since debuting at SXSW.
Legendary actor Udo Kier stars as retired hairdresser Pat Pitsenbarger, who escapes the confines of his small-town Sandusky, Ohio nursing home after learning of his former client's dying wish for him to style her final hairdo. Pat embarks on an odyssey to confront the ghosts of his past - and collect the beauty supplies necessary for the job. Swan Song is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering one's sparkle and looking gorgeous while doing so.
Critics are saying...
"Swan Song is one of the best films of the year and Udo Kier deserves whatever accolades are coming for him. It’s funny, it’s bittersweet, and it should be a movie that you watch in the year 2021 and beyond." That Hashtag Show
"The film shrewdly details how a gay forefather’s legacy has paved the way for today’s queer kids to unabashedly embrace their queerness." Slant Magazine
"Swan Song is a new delightful gem within modern queer cinema, but it doesn’t end there. It’s a delicate story of self-worth and forgiveness, told through the eyes of an aging flamboyant stylist in conservative America." Discussion Film
