Run Sweetheart Run

Run Sweetheart Run is a timely, stylistic horror that launches on Prime Video this weekend, and to mark its release we had the pleasure in speaking to its two leading stars: the hero, Ella Balinska, and the villain, Pilou Asbæk. We discussed the shooting of the film, and the themes it explores, and Balinska talks to us about why it feels pertinent and relatable. Meanwhile Asbæk talks us through his process when it comes to tackling sheer villainy, while also talking about his status in Hollywood, and what his ambitions are. Be sure to watch both interviews in their entirety below.

Initially apprehensive when her boss insists she meets with one of his most important clients, single mom Cherie is relieved and excited when she meets charismatic Ethan. The influential businessman defies expectations and sweeps Cherie off her feet. But at the end of the night, when the two are alone together, he reveals his true, violent nature. Battered and terrified, she flees for her life, beginning a relentless game of cat-and-mouse with a bloodthirsty assailant hell-bent on her utter destruction. In this edge-of-your-seat dark thriller, Cherie finds herself in the crosshairs of a conspiracy stranger and more evil than she could have ever imagined.
