About the Film:
SWING - a new film
by Martin Guigui, is the dance- and music-filled story of Anthony Verdi
(Innis Casey), a young man caught between his dream of being a full-time
musician and the conventional life of his security-minded father (Tom
Skerritt) and long-time fiancé (Dahlia Waingort).
But Anthony has the encouragement
of several important people around him. There is Bill Verdi, his
loving great-uncle (Jonathan Winters), who is determined that Anthony
will not meet with the same fate as his musician brother, Anthony's grandfather
whom he never knew. Anthony's outrageous bass-playing roommate (Mindy
Cohn) knows first-hand the joys and satisfactions of a musician's life.
The head of his great-uncle's nursing home (Nell Carter, in her
final performance) recognizes Anthony's talent and leads him to an important
First and foremost there
is Christine, the beautiful older woman (Jacqueline Bisset) he meets
in an out-of-this-world forties night club he chances upon, who teaches
him to swing dance. From her he also learns that swing is a metaphor
for life and that, only if he follows his heart and starts being who he
truly is, can real happiness be his.
Along this journey of self-discovery,
which includes confronting his father's expectations and coming to the
realization that he and his fiancé no longer share a common future,
a young woman named Tina (introducing Constance Brenneman) keeps
reappearing, a sure sign that Anthony is heading in the right direction.
Barry Bostwick, Christine's
late husband and angelic mentor; Jim Hanks, the all-knowing maitre'd
of the night club; and Adam Tomei, the eccentric drummer of Anthony's
trio, round out the cast.
Shot in San Francisco and
Oakland, SWING, with its positive message about the true source
of happiness, exciting swing dance sequences, and an eclectic mix of musical
styles, resonates with both the young and the young-at-heart.
