Beloved fitness influencer Sylwia (Magdalena Koleśnik, in a star-making role) seemingly has it made: hundreds of thousands of social media followers, endorsement deals, photo spreads in magazines. But as she starts to share more and more online, the rising pressure from concerned sponsors and increasingly obsessive fans forces her to confront her deepest insecurities and the exhaustive demands of her lifestyle.
The breakout second feature from writer-director Magnus von Horn, Sweat offers an up-to-the-second, achingly relatable 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. A MUBI release
