UK Premiere

A group of 40-something guys decide to form their local pool’s first ever synchronised swimming team – for men. Braving skepticism and ridicule and trained by a fallen champion trying to pull herself together, the group set out on an unlikely adventure. French director Gilles Lellouche made a splash at this year’s Cannes festival with a hugely entertaining and moving comedy about dreams that can come true even if we don’t dare believe in them.

Preceded by an introduction and followed by a Q&A with director Gilles Lellouche
