The Drowning is the story of a forensic psychologist who is haunted by his expert witness testimony that sent a young boy to prison. It celebrates the psychological thriller genre with electrifying performances. Complex, riveting and unafraid to tread deep in murky pathological waters.
“A new classic that redefines, with great intelligence, the erotic thrillers of the past with twenty-first century skill, and vision.”
– Hilton Als
“The Drowning distinguishes itself by applying a depth of psychological observation that yields a genuinely unsettling vision.”
– Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
