Unlike most teen flicks, Swimming takes its time to tell its story, casts mostly little-known performers in key roles, and introduces some intriguing ambiguity. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- An unusually dry-eyed, even analytical approach to material that is generally played for maximum moisture.

The film is an earnest try at beachcombing verismo, but it would be even more indistinct than it is were it not for the striking, quietly vulnerable personality of Ms. Ambrose. Full Review

Rating: B- -- The anti-touristy mood of Siegel's film sets it apart from other less thoughtful teen beach flicks. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Swimming isn't a major film. Nor does it try to be. But what, in the end, is a major film? If it's one that accomplishes what it sets out to do, then we ought to correct ourselves.

Flawed, but worth seeing for Ambrose's performance. Full Review

The town has kind of an authentic feel, but each one of these people stand out and everybody else is in the background and it just seems manufactured to me and artificial.
