A story of the fading of the jazz-age American aristocracy, The Song of Sway Lake tells of the last remnants of the Sway family, in the golden light of late summer, on a lake that bears their name. In the early 1990s, orphaned Ollie (Rory Culkin) and his charismatic young Russian friend Nikolai (Robert Sheehan) try to steal a priceless 1940s record from the collection of Ollie’s grandmother Charlie Sway (Mary Beth Peil). While Ollie falls in love with a class-conscious local girl (Isabelle McNally), Nikolai secretly woos the matriarch herself, and Charlie confronts the invisible burden of her fixation on the past. In The Song of Sway Lake, all those in the long shadow of the “Greatest Generation” struggle to cast off the weight of an age of glamour they cannot recreate.
Featuring a sparking soundtrack, including the stunning original of the title.
