Storyline

An adult swim class sets the stage for this sexually charged comedy-drama about love, loss, and second chances. Three strangers-inextricably connected through personal heartbreak-find themselves entering deep water as they learn that life isn't always about diving right in-it's about getting your feet wet once in awhile. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

16 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the good fortune of screening this movie as part of the Tribeca Film Fest and it was an absolute pleasure. A great combination of comedy and drama, served up without any of the pretense that can be so inherit in first feature outings. This did not feel like a low-budget first feature.

Big Bad Swim has a lot going for it: A polished but still still indie look and feel, a tremendous cast and strong performances. I found the story to be just the right balance of complex and accessible. It had characters that you can immediately relate to and more importantly care about.

I highly recommend checking out this flick!
