On Monday evenings that we don’t have another program scheduled, we will show a movie of adult interest that ties into the Adult Summer Reading Program theme. This true story tells of young Aussie Tony Fingleton growing up in a home with a drunken abusive father who is always pitting his sons against one another. As the target of his father’s drunken abuse, young Tony Fingleton escapes to the underwater solitude of the local pool, where he aspires to win his father's love by becoming a national swimming champion. But when his cruel father pits Tony against his own brother in a competition to make the Olympic team, Tony must find the courage to swim his way to victory... and out of his father's emotionally crippling net. Rated PG-13.
