Stewart proves her talents stretch far beyond acting

Entitled Come Swim, Kristen Stewart's first turn at writing and directing a film screened at last years Cannes and Sundance Film Festivals to critical acclaim. Created as part Refinery29’s Shatterbox Anthology film series, the psychological thriller runs just under 18 minutes but packs a powerful punch.

Described in the film's notes as "a diptych of one man's day; half impressionist and half realist portraits," we follow the protagonist on an abstract journey through grief with the only dialogue occuring in brief, repetitive phrases. 

Stewart describes the story as "full-on heartbreak,"explaining "I just wanted to externalize an incredibly internal struggle and then see it again from the outside."

However, a blockbuster it ain't. The film is brilliant in its tension and is sure to give viewers some serious feels. Watch it below in full.
