‘Swimming with Men’
Thursday 20th February
Corsley Reading Room
Doors open at
7 pm film begins at 7.30 pm
Last month we showed ‘The Mercy’, starring Colin Firth as a middle‐aged amateur sailor seeking a purpose, and with it fame. Our February film also features middle‐aged men and water but that's where the similarity ends. In a typically dry English comedy with an underlying social thread, Swimming with men is reminiscent of ‘The Full Monty’ and ‘Brassed Off’.
It follows a set of the most unlikely men who form a synchronised swimming team, the story inspired by a real‐life group of middle‐aged Swedes. The film begins by centring on a bored accountant (Rob Brydon), left behind by his ambitious wife (Jane Horrocks). A chance meeting with the team of similarly aged men in the local pool sees him join
their keen, if faltering, swimming endeavours. His application of mathematics to their failing moves helps the group progress, along with support from their long‐suffering coach, played by Charlotte Riley. The cast includes familiar faces, such as Jim Carter, Daniel Mays and Rupert Graves, making it easy‐to‐watch, simple humour. Described as ‘refreshingly unselfconscious with some very non‐Love Island bodies’ by one film critic. Be prepared for relatively large amounts of male flesh behaving in a totally non‐British way.
