The title of the film could be seen as a misnomer, since Paul Thompson (Joseph Fiennes) is swimming with the current, downstream, and not against the current, or upstream, but below Albany NY, where most if not all of the film takes place, the Hudson river is a tidal estuary, and flows both ways with the tide.

This is probably one of the most insightful films I've watched ever.It acknowledges that emotional pain can sometimes be more debilitating than physical pain. I hope people who watch are able to grasp the honesty and the realness of the characters. Although Mary Tyler Moore's character was a little over the top. The acting was sublime and the music was beautiful. This may not be a film for the incurable optimist but then again depending on how you interpret it, it may be. One of it's most beautiful features is its portrayal of friendship, real friendship. The writer, actors and directors displayed enormous empathy for a difficult topic. This is a not a film for the feint hearted or anyone incapable of deep reflection.
