WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Hank (Dano), a young man stranded on a deserted island, is about to end his life when he suddenly spots the corpse of a young man named Manny (Radcliffe) washing up onto the shore. Discovering that Manny possesses several useful abilities, among them powerful flatulence, Hank strikes up a friendship with the corpse as they attempt to get home and approach the woman of Hank’s dreams, Sarah (Winstead)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Boasting perhaps the barmiest premise of the year, Swiss Army Man sees the inescapable duo of Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe – the latter as a farting corpse – doing what they can to lift its oddness to something cohesive.
