Sync or Swim

Inspired by the 2010 documentary, Men Who Swim, SWIMMING WITH MEN tells the story of Eric (Rob Brydon), an accountant in the throes of a mid-life crisis, who eventually finds new meaning to his life as part of an all-male, middle-aged amateur synchronised swimming team.

The ramshackle squad slowly learn to reveal their inner lives, as well as their paunches and together they make a bid to compete at the Unofficial Male Synch-Swimming World Championships.

With a talented British cast that includes Jane Horrocks (Absolutely Fabulous), Rupert Graves (TV’s Sherlock) and Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders) SWIMMING WITH MEN is a delightful comedy that tips its (swimming) cap at beloved British films such as The Full Monty and Calendar Girls.

“..perfectly pitched performances from well-chosen cast.” – Daily Mail
