Colin (David Lyons) is driving alone, minding his own business when a car turns over and another car blows up. He goes to check on the man in the car and finds him dead. A briefcase was thrown from the car and it's full of money, gobs of it. Colin is a noble guy and wants to do the right thing. He checks on a beautiful blonde woman who got a conk on the head and offers to drive her to the hospital.

While only trying to do what's right, Colin gets himself caught up in a tornado of dangerous people with no morals. It's a great film noir filmed in Australia and written and directed by Craig Lahiff.

Swerve” also stars Australian actor Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”) as a crooked sheriff in a sparsely populated and unwelcoming Australian town. Emma Booth plays Jini, who uses her impossibly beautiful looks as a tool for conniving to get what she wants. She will even seduce you and you'll find yourself feeling sorry for this femme fatale. David Lyons looks like a young Paul Newman. Poor, honorable Colin, so cursed with bad luck and horrific timing.

With twists and turns and a slow unfolding of fascinating characters, "Swerve" will take you far out of your typical days. American thrillers go much faster, this one is like fine dining where you want to savor every bite. The surprises are packaged beautiful among skilled and hypnotizing actors.

Travis McMahon is chilling as psychotic Charlie. Vince Colosimo plays Jina's disgusting boss, Sam.
