“Against The Current” (2009)

Even though there are tons of movies we have yet to see, on a foggy night in the southside we went to the “on demand” channel and choose a 2009 Sundance selection “Against the Current.”

It was exactly what we were looking for. A grieving man chooses to swim the Hudson River as a tribute to his dead wife. He takes along his best friend, Jeff played by Justin Kirk, and an acquaintance of Jeff and Paul, Liz played by Elizabeth Reaser. Beautifully shot along the Hudson River and lots to laugh at, Kirk who plays Andy on “Weeds” was brilliant. Mary Tyler Moore plays Liz’s mother who doesn’t exactly approve or disapprove of anything as long as she has a drink in her hand.

I would have paid for this one if it was still playing in the movie theaters.

Written and directed by Peter Callahan

Starring: Joseph Fiennes, Justin Kirk, Elizabeth Reaser, Mary Tyler Moore, Michelle Trachtenberg
