‘Swimming with Men’ opens at Cinema Arts Theater Dec. 7

December 5, 2018

Beginning Dec. 7, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “Swimming with Men,” a high-spirited comedy about a group of middle-aged, less-than-perfect men who defy traditional gender norms and embrace their inner-synchronized swimmers.

His job is a drag, his wife may be cheating on him, and he’s not getting any younger. Accountant Eric (Rob Brydon) is simply treading water when he discovers a newfound sense of purpose thanks to an unexpected source: a group of similarly stuck-in-a-rut guys who have found camaraderie and self-worth through synchronized swimming. Sure, they may be a bit paunchy, but they’re determined to prove they have what it takes to be a whirling, twirling, scissor-kicking aquatic dream team. And they’ve set their sights on the ultimate prize: the world championship. Showcasing the sharp wit of The Trip series’ Rob Brydon, “Swimming with Men” is a big-hearted, delightfully offbeat ode to answering a calling, no matter where one is in life.

Screening times are 7 p.m., Friday, Dec 7; 4:45 p.m., Saturday, Dec 8; 4 p.m., Wednesday, Dec 12; and 4 p.m., Thursday, Dec 13. Admission is $8 for members and $11 for future members. Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets online. If seats are available, tickets can be purchased at the theater, starting 30 minutes prior to each screening.
