Swimming With Men Directed
Oliver Parker United Kingdom / 2018 / 96 minutes New York Premiere
Times and Venues:
His job is a drag, his wife may be cheating on him, and he’s not getting any younger. Accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) is simply treading water when he discovers a newfound sense of purpose, thanks to an unexpected source: a group of similarly stuck-in-a-rut guys who have found camaraderie and self-worth through synchronized swimming. Sure, they may be a bit paunchy, but they’re determined to prove they have what it takes to be a whirling, twirling, scissor-kicking aquatic dream team. And they’ve set their sights on the ultimate prize: the world championship. Showcasing the sharp wit of The Trip series’ Rob Brydon, Swimming With Men is a bighearted, delightfully offbeat ode to answering your calling, no matter where you are in life.
Oliver Parker was born on September 6, 1960 in London, England. He is an actor and director, known for An Ideal Husband (1999), Dorian Gray (2009) and Nightbreed (1990).
