A smart, lovingly rendered, savy little film that really comes to life., 11 January 2002
Author: jackstanton311 from new york

Swimming is an intelligent and moving film which treats familiar subject matter in an unfamiliar way. The story of a local beach townie's rites of passage is told with meaning, charm and dimension. It is emotionally rich enough for both men and women to identify with the lead character, Frankie, wonderfully played by Lauren Ambrose, who will surely emerge as a major star. The role is an extremely difficult one, to which Lauren brings depth and emotional nuance. A good deal of credit for her performance belongs to the understated direction and very well thought out screenplay. The film is moving, charming, funny at times but mostly a fulfilling view of life that one rarely encounters in contemporary cinema. It takes its time to tell its story and in the end leaves the audience, certainly myself, feeling uplifted and satisfied. If Swimming gets to your vicinity, make a point of seeing it. It's worth the trip to the theater.
