- Synopsis / Plot
- "SWIMMING UPSTREAM" tells the compelling and inspirational true story of Tony Fingleton, a young man from a troubled family who found the inner strength to become a champion.
Based on Anthony Fingleton’s novel of the same name and set in 1950s Brisbane, Australia, Jesse Spencer as Tony, a young man who beats the odds to become a champion swimmer in spite of his overbearing, alcoholic father (Geoffrey Rush) and long-suffering but quietly heroic mother (Judy Davis). Overshadowed in his father’s eyes by his brothers, it’s only when Tony displays an extraordinary swimming talent that he feels he has a shot at winning his father’s heart – and maybe even Olympic gold.
