“Once lauded as the ‘Liberace of Sandusky, Ohio’ retired hairdresser Pat Pitsenbarger (Udo Kier) has given up. Now living in an institutional-style retirement home, Pat’s physical, mental, and emotional traumas weigh heavy over his daily life. However, things begin to shift when a visitor brings news that an old client has recently passed, requesting Pat’s stylist services for her final look. Pat sets out on a cathartic, healing journey that reopens old wounds and reawakens his fabulous inner self. Written and directed by Todd Stephens, Swan Song offers a touching, funny, and emotional journey of self-redemption told through a deeply personal lens… Udo Kier delivers the performance of a highly prolific lifetime. Trading in his stereotypical villain image for silk scarves, polyester suits, and sassy one-liners, he transforms in the absolute best possible way. Displaying a keen control over body language and subtle emotional shifts, Kier’s presence anchors the film… Swan Song succeeds and proves that fabulousness has no expiration date.” – Rachel Reeves, Consequence Film
