The best film noirs aren't just about the twisted schemes and desires of the characters trying to pull one over, but they instead dig into what drives our behavior and ambitions. And the upcoming Aussie thriller "Swerve" seems to be reaching for those heights.

The best film noirs aren't just about the twisted schemes and desires of the characters trying to pull one over, but they instead dig into what drives our behavior and ambitions. And the upcoming Aussie thriller "Swerve" seems to be reaching for those heights.

Starring Jason Clarke, Emma Booth and David Lyons, and written and directed by Craig Lahiff, the story is set against the Australian outback where a man stumbles across a car accident, and finds a suitcase stacked with cash. He does the right thing and turns it in but is soon caught between a twisted police officer and his femme fatale wife. In this exclusive clip, we see all three leads in a poolside sequence brimming with sex and tension, as Clarke quickly asserts himself as the dominant figure in this trio.

"Swerve" opens in limited release this Friday, December 6th. Watch below.
