Apple Original Films announced the release date for its upcoming drama film Swan Song, which will feature an all-star cast led by two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. The film is slated to make its debut in theaters and globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, December 17.
In addition, Apple also released the first official Swan Song photos, which you can check out in the gallery below, providing us with our first look at the star-studded cast, including Ali and acclaimed actresses Glenn Close, Naomi Harris, and Awkwafina.
Described as an emotionally compelling and thought-provoking film, Swan Song is written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer). The film stars Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Green Book), Glenn Close (The Wife), Awkwafina (The Farewell), Naomie Harris (Skyfall, Moonlight), and Adam Beach (Smoke Signals).
“Set in the near future, the series is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness who is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Close) to shield his family from grief,” reads the official synopsis. “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.”
Swan Song is a co-production between Anonymous Content and Concordia Studio. Producers are Adam Shulman and Jacob Perlin for Anonymous Content; Jonathan King for Concordia Studio; Rebecca Bourke; and Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés for Know Wonder.
