A man sets out on what he thinks is an adventure but is instead a devastating portrait of the American Dream.

Grindhouse Releasing is proud to present the ultimate late-60s studio-produced cult film, THE SWIMMER. In his finest performance, Burt Lancaster stars as Ned Merrill, a man who confronts his destiny by swimming home, pool by pool, through the suburban nightmare of upper class East coast society. Based on the acclaimed short-story by John Cheever, and directed by Frank Perry (DIARY OF A MAD HOUSEWIFE, MOMMIE DEAREST), THE SWIMMER is film like no other, a feature-length TWILIGHT ZONE episode by way of THE NEW YORKER.
