SYNOPSIS

The Swimmer will screen from an imported 35mm print.

Burt Lancaster leads this surreal, Technicolor interrogation of the American Dream. Visiting friends for an afternoon pool party, Ned Merrill realises he can follow a chain of neighbouring backyard pools to return home. At each stop, however, he confronts an incident from his life that brings to light his complicated and troubling past.
