Sun Screen

The Swimmer PG

Tue 20 Aug, 6.15pm

"★★★★ – An enigmatic, poetic, disturbing, interestingly pretentious fable" – Empire

Burt Lancaster stars as wealthy ad-exec Ned Merrill who, after visiting with friends one hot summer’s day, decides to ‘swim home’ – via the backyard pools of all his affluent neighbours.

But with each pool length Ned’s bravado is stripped away as his past comes back to haunt him.

Based on a short story by John Cheever, The Swimmer is an oft-praised but underseen masterpiece of American cinema, and one of the great films about the fading of '60s idealism.
