: : : Swimming Upstream

Story

In 1950s Brisbane, Australia, Tony Fingleton (Jesse Spencer) beats the odds to become a champion swimmer in spite of his overbearing, alcoholic father (Geoffrey Rush) and long-suffering but quietly heroic mother (Judy Davis). Overshadowed in his father's eyes by his brothers, it's only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at winning his father's heart -- and maybe even Olympic gold.
