Apple Original Films has announced that Swan Song will debut in theaters and globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, December 17. Swan Song stars two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali, who also serves as producer; eight-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close; and Academy Award nominee Naomie Harris. Golden Globe Award winner Awkwafina and Golden Globe Award nominee Adam Beach also star in the ensemble cast.
Set in the near future, “Swan Song” 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. 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 film is helmed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary (Stutterer), from an original screenplay written by Cleary and produced by Anonymous Content and Concordia Studio. Producers are Adam Shulman (Defending Jacob) and Jacob Perlin (The Amazing Johnathan Documentary) on behalf of Anonymous Content; Jonathan King (Stillwater, Dark Waters) on behalf of Concordia Studio; Rebecca Bourke (Wave); Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés (Hidden Figures) through Know Wonder.
