The Movie: Sink or Swim

The Cast: Mathieu Amalric, Guillaume Canet, Benoit Poelvoorde, Jean-Hugues Anglade, Virginie Efira, Leila Bekhti, Marina Fois

The Story: A depressed man joins a synchronized swimming team made up of middle aged men.

The Review:
Oh man, this was such a fun, heart warming, and inspirational movie. The time tested underdog triumph formula is executed to perfection complete with training montages and  dramatic side stories. More importantly, the film makers do some real exploration into mental health topics and presents them in very valid and constructive ways that made the experience even more rewarding in the end.
