Reviews: Anna and the Apocalypse 2017 "Adding a spiky sarcasm, Swire is a live wire who notably also served as the film’s incredible choreographer!"; "...Swire coming across like an underage Gwendoline Christie still finding her badass groove"; "...terrific lyrics and the odd bit of slick choreography (by Sarah Swire, also playing the film’s best character, badass lesbian Steph)"
