    This is the route Claire Danes should have taken. Do an indie, or two, then go swimming with the sharks. Fans of the much-beloved ABC series will recognize the dynamics of the relationships, and see dopplegangers for Angela, Rayanne, and Sharon. "Swimming" is "My So-Called Life Goes to Myrtle Beach". Like Danes before she fought the Bard but the Bard won, Lauren Ambrose is absolutely This is the route Claire Danes should have taken. Do an indie, or two, then go swimming with the sharks. Fans of the much-beloved ABC series will recognize the dynamics of the relationships, and see dopplegangers for Angela, Rayanne, and Sharon. "Swimming" is "My So-Called Life Goes to Myrtle Beach". Like Danes before she fought the Bard but the Bard won, Lauren Ambrose is absolutely wonderful. You know it's a good coming-of-age film if the girl can walk alongside a street or the water in an unbroken shot and wonder what's on her mind. Ambrose carries the movie but gets nice support from Joelle Carter(as the new shoe) and Jennifer Dundas(as the old shoe). "Swimming" is a small film that hits all the right notes and it sounds like Smog. Go Greek if you must, then go geek. Expand

  1. Sprightly acting, understated emotions, and lovingly detailed ambience make this amiable comedy-drama an easygoing indie pleasure.

    A rarity among modern movies: a coming-of-age tale without cliche or sentimentality. Bolstered by a luminous lead performance from Lauren Ambrose.
  3. Its leisurely pace and reliance on Ambrose's pale-lashed gaze make it more of an interior monologue. That may not please viewers who crave action, but those with patience will be rewarded.
