A look at the cast of Swimming With Men, the upcoming comedy movie directed by Oliver Parker based on a script by Aschlin Ditta and starring Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Adeel Akhtar, Jim Carter, Jane Horrocks, Thomas Turgoose, Daniel Mays, and Charlotte Riley:(Click on the picture to enlarge.)
“The Full Monty in Speedos! This is the story of Eric (Rob Brydon), an accountant searching to win back his wife Heather by diving into the world of male synchronized swimming.
Joining his local team Men Who Swim, Eric finds a surprising brotherhood in this motley crew as they train for the world championships in Milan. Can their coach Susan whip them into shape? Will they master the ‘flower’, the ‘pyramid’ and the ‘spinning circle’ in time? More importantly, can Eric win Heather back again with the help of his new-found confidence?”
Synchronized swimming aka water ballet is really hard, I’d even say it’s a damn grueling sport, the closest thing to self-waterboarding… He must really love his wife to do it!
The film has yet to get an official release date.
Stay tuned with us for more details about the movie Swimming With Men.
Update – Another plto synopsis reads as follow:
“Faced with a full-blown mid-life crisis, accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) joins an all-male group of synchronized swimmers, discovering that making patterns in a pool can, for a couple of hours at least, smooth out the bumps in his work and marriage. Initially keeping their personal lives in the locker, the ramshackle squad and coach Susan (Charlotte Riley) slowly learn to reveal their inner lives, as well as their paunches. But can they get their lives and routines in sync as they embark on an unlikely journey to Milan to compete in the World Championship?”
