"Swimming" is something to be proud of
By John Black
April 5, 2002

Four years ago, before finding fame on the HBO series, "Six Feet Under," Lauren Ambrose made "Swimming." Now it's getting released, and unlike most indie-films with actors before they're discovered, "Swimming" is something to be proud of. It's a sweet coming-of-age flick about the changes a girl goes through in a single summer at a resort. Director Robert Siegel does a great job capturing the little but important moments of life by giving the actors plenty of room to create honest characters. The result is sweet but never cloying.
