Movie Info

Swoon chronicles the true story of Richard Loeb and Nathan Leopold Jr.'s abduction and murder of the teenaged Bobby Franks in 1924. Though the story had been told before (in the fictionalized Rope and Compulsion), in the hands of director Tom Kalin, the tale becomes more explicit, particularly in how it makes clear that the wealthy, collegiate Loeb and Leopold were homosexual lovers.
