SWIMMING WITH MEN OPENING AT THE CINEMA ART THEATER
Starting on December 7, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present SWIMMING WITH MEN, a high-spirited comedy about a group of middle-aged, less-than-perfect men who defy traditional gender norms and embrace their inner-synchronized swimmers. If you enjoyed the humor of A TRIP TO SPAIN and you’re looking for an uplifting laugh, you’ll love SWIMMING WITH MEN.
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 big-hearted, delightfully offbeat ode to answering your calling, no matter where you are in life. [2018, UK, 96 minutes, Not Rated].
