Swing State

PLOT:

Seattle based rock DJ, Ethan Smith, hosts a popular radio program called Ears Wide Shut which appeals to his passion for music but unfortunately, pays a very low wage. When the conservative host of a right wing program also featured on the radio station goes missing, Ethan is called in to cover his absence. Donning a wig and bowtie, he invents the persona, Charles Fern, and brands himself “the new voice for the Right”. Ethan intends the charade to be a one-time deal but his listeners find that the fictitious Fern is the tough talker they have been desperate to hear. When the talk show enjoys a huge spike in ratings following Ethan’s hosting gig, he is asked to take over the high-paying host job full-time and pushed onto the national stage where he may make history but lose everything that matters to him in the process.

What people are saying:

“Swing State goes for light and broad comedy, while mocking both sides.” 2 1/2 stars

“Initially I didn’t know what to expect when I put the film on but as I continued to watch I found it to be a wonderful movie. It had a lot of humorous moments and a well written story line. I think it had a fun flare to add to all this political talk we have had going on. If you enjoy a good story line and whity movie give this one a go!” 5 stars

“I loved this movie! Definitely brought a new flare to political movies at least for me. I thought the acting and writing was well done and overall it was a great film.” 5 stars

“What happened to these actors? Why? This is an awful movie. Everything about it is really bad. The writing, acting and directing are shameful.” 1/2 star

“This is a dumb idea poorly executed. The worst writing of any film I have seen in the last year at least. The dialogue is stupid. The acting is pathetic. Beh looks like a fool. The movie is sexist and instead of being satirical is really just bad. The director could not save the terrible writing. Taryn Manning should pretend she never did this film.” 1/2 star
