Review of 'Swimming with Men'

Nice British film about mid-life crises for men and how a group responds by forming a men's synchronized swimming team - only to find out that it's an actual thing and that there's a world championship competition. In which they end up representing Britain, because they are the only ones doing it.

Lots of great character acting, some really good visual jokes that flash by so quickly that they are easy to miss, a good script. Time well spent. I particularly liked the depictions of swimming as something calming and head-clearing.

Watched on Netflix via Chromecast.
