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, accompanied by two friends in a boat (Justin Kirk, of Weeds fame, and Elizabeth Reaser). The film premiered at Sundance and has been making the rounds of the festival circuit.
Against The Current is playing TONIGHT (October 22) at 6:15pm at FilmColmbia Festival at the Crandall Theatre in Chatham, followed by a Q&A with director Peter Callahan.
