Directed by Oliver Parker. With Rob Brydon, Rupert Graves, Thomas Turgoose, Adeel Akhtar. A man who is suffering a mid-life crisis finds new meaning in his life as part of an all-male, middle-aged, amateur synchronised swimming team.
A film of toxic masculinity and it’s effects, it’s a good movie and I suggest it, but it just slightly misses it’s mark at the end of the day in terms of just how toxic life can be and how we should react to it.
