"I also want someone to hold hands with. To talk to… about my feelings." Mubi has debuted a new official trailer for an indie film from Poland titled Sweat, which originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. It also played at the Zurich, Hamburg, Chicago, Tokyo, New Horizons, Tallinn Black Nights, and Rotterdam Film Festivals. Sweat is about three days in the life of fitness motivator Sylwia Zajac, a social media celebrity surrounded by loyal employees and admirers, who is really looking for true intimacy. It's yet another cautionary tale trying to bring to the light the honest truth about how vapid and soul-sucking social media is, and how it's easy to get caught up in the craze of the attention it brings. Magdalena Kolesnik stars as Sylwia. This also stars Julian Swiezewski, Aleksandra Konieczna, Zbigniew Zamachowski, Tomasz Orpinski, Lech Lotocki, and Magdalena Kuta. This looks like it's going to be very, very good.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Magnus von Horn's Sweat, direct from YouTube:

Beloved fitness influencer Sylwia (Magdalena KoleĊ›nik with a star-making performance) 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 her concerned sponsors and increasingly obsessive fans forces Sylwia to confront her deepest insecurities and the exhaustive demands of her lifestyle. Sweat is both written and directed by Swedish filmmaker Magnus von Horn, his second feature after The Here After previously, as well as a few short films. This originally premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and played at many other festivals. Mubi will release Sweat in select US theaters on June 18th, available streaming on MUBI (in the US + additional countries) starting July 23rd. Intrigued?
