Against The Current

Filed Under Entertainment



On the five year anniversary of the death of his pregnant wife, a thirty something financial writer decides to mark the day by swimming the length of the Hudson River, all 150-miles of it. He enlists his best friend Jeff and a schoolteacher Liz to come along, with all three looking for some soul-searching in their lives. Both tragic and humorous, Against the Current is a compelling and uncompromising exploration of grief, loss and one’s right to determine their own fate, and the limits and responsibilities of friendship.

Starring: Michelle Trachtenberg, Joseph Fiennes, Elizabeth Reaser, Justin Kirk, Mary Tyler Moore and Pell James.
