Directed by Gilles Lellouche (France/Belgium, 2018, 122 min.). Digital. French and Sinhalese with English subtitles.

Nominated for ten César Awards including Best Film, this buoyant comedy follows a depressed, unemployed man (Mathieu Amalric) who spends his days popping pills and playing Candy Crush until he finds a flyer for a newly minted all-male swimming team at the local pool. He soon discovers his new teammates are a gaggle of misfits led by a disgraced champion, Delphine (Virginie Efira). Braving the skepticism and ridicule of those around them, they set out on an unlikely adventure, discovering a lot about themselves along the way.
