In the spirit of Billy Elliot and Chariots of Fire comes this compelling and inspirational true story starring Geoffrey Rush, Judy Davis, Jesse Spencer and Tim Draxl. Hailed by critics for its “emotionally powerful” story, Swimming Upstream is the true story of Tony Fingleton, a young man from a troubled family who found the inner strength to become a champion. Always overshadowed in his father's eyes by his brothers, it is only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at winning his father's heart.
