Brilliant combination of fine Australian actors - Swimming Upstream review by frangipaniannie

Spoiler Alert

Judy Davis and Geoffrey Rush; it doesn't get any finer than this. Brilliant performances by these two consummate actors; the rest of the cast are adequate,the story line is good, if not a little trite; we could have coped with a little more depth. Locations and styling give a very authentic feel; I know; I grew up in mid 60's Australia.
