Writer-director Todd Stephens (EDGE OF SEVENTEEN, GYPSY 83) brings you the charming story of retired hairdresser and local bar performer Pat Pitsenbarger, who has given up on life in his small-town Ohio nursing home. But when Pat gets word about a former client's dying wish for him to style her final hairdo, he sets out on an epic journey to collect the necessary beauty supplies and confront the ghosts of his past.

Anchored by an iconic performance from Udo Kier and featuring queer favorites Jennifer Coolidge and Michael Urie, SWAN SONG is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering oneself – and looking gorgeous while doing so. 105 min

This screening will be followed by a post-screening reception.
