“The most intense look at a social media fiend since Eighth Grade” IndieWire
“Lively and slightly surreal” The Hollywood Reporter
MUBI, the global distributor and curated film streaming service, has announced that Magnus von Horn’s acclaimed Sweat will be available to stream exclusively on the platform in India from 23 July.
The breakout second feature from writer-director Magnus von Horn, Sweat is a shocking glimpse beneath the candy-colored surface of internet celebrity. Magdalena Koleśnik turns in a star-making performance as beloved fitness influencer Sylwia, who seemingly has it made: hundreds of thousands of social media followers, endorsement deals, photo spreads in magazines.
But when she shares a video of herself breaking down in tears on Instagram, Sylwia’s sponsors become concerned, her most rabid fan turns increasingly obsessive, and she’s forced to confront her deepest insecurities. As she barrels toward a talk show appearance that could catapult her fame or destroy everything she’s built, Sylwia must decide whether she can keep up with the exhaustive demands of her online fame.
Refreshingly honest and achingly relatable, Sweat offers an up-to-the-second portrait of everyone’s need for genuine connection. Told with the pulse-pounding intensity of a thriller, this riveting drama exposes the real-life repercussions of our digital culture.
Sweat will be available to stream exclusively on MUBI starting 23 July
