“As do few movies, The Swimmer stays in the memory like an echo that never quite disappears.” - Vincent Canby, New York Times

Film Club favourite Burt Lancaster delivers one of his  finest performances as middle-aged suburbanite Neddy Merrill who one day decides to swim his way home via his neighbours' swimming pools. Adapted from John Cheever's brilliant short story, this is bizarre vision of 1960s America and a lost gem of a movie.
