Verjaardagsfilm: The Swimmer (1968)

Di 29 mei | 20:15 | GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

Zwembadfilm in de voormalige zwem- en badinrichting.

To celebrate the birthday of DNR, during the month of May we’ll have special screenings with guests and many surprises!

The Swimmer (Frank Perry and Sydney Pollack 1968)
In an affluent Connecticut suburb, Ned Merrill (Burt Lancaster in his finest performance) decides to swim home via the pools of his wealthy friends. Along the way he encounters several women from his past: a tempestuous teenage girl, his embittered ex-mistress, and the sensual wife of an old friend. Ned's journey is one of embarrassments, humiliation and steamy passion.

This woefully forgotten gem from the 1960s is a penetrating piece of allegorical introspection that was clearly ahead of its time. One of the most effective films about American suburbia, and the impossible-to-sustain contentment that comes with material success.

* This is a special screening to celebrate the birthday of our venue, which used to be swimming pool.
