Event Description

Annette Bening and Jodie Foster star in this film depicting the true story of Diana Nyad’s attempt to become the first person to swim from Cuba to the US without a shark cage, decades after her retirement from the sport. Her best friend, Bonnie Stoll (Foster), thinks it’s a little foolish, but has no choice except to jump in as her coach once it becomes clear that Nyad (Bening) isn’t backing down. Directors Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin are no strangers to extreme endeavours, using their documentary background from Free Solo and The Rescue to help frame this voyage. The film is ultimately a story of friendship, brought powerfully to life by Bening and Foster. —New York Film Festival

“While a dedicated Bening gives her all in a tough, physically demanding role, deserving of at least another nomination if not necessarily a win, it’s Foster who steals the film with a fine reminder of her easy charisma.” —Guardian
