Mahershala Ali stars in the interesting new drama “Swan Song”. It comes from writer-director Benjamin Cleary and is set to release later this year on AppleTV+. Showing off a nice supporting cast and an eye-catching style, the first trailer does a good job setting up this heartbreaking moral tale.
Ali plays Cameron, a loving husband and new father who’s keeping a painful secret from his wife (Naomie Harris) – he’s dying. Rather than leave his family alone, Cameron sees a doctor (Glen Close) about a controversial new cloning practice. A fascinating array of questions follow. Is it ethical? Is it fair to his wife and child? Is he doing it for his wife or is it more for himself? Awkwafina also stars in this compelling and thought-provoking film.
“Swan Song” premieres December 17th on AppleTV+. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
