On Thursday, January 7th from 5:30 p.m., watch Le Grand Bain, a 2018 French comedy film directed by Gilles Lellouche. It was screened out of competition at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.

When out-of-work suburban family man Bertrand (Mathieu Amalric) trades his all-day bathrobe for swim trunks, it’s to see if joining a municipal pool’s men’s synchronized swimming team will restore his pride. But it’s a depressive/foolish bunch of participants, including a hotheaded dad (Guillaume Canet), a never-was rock musician (Jean-Hugues Anglade) and a failing businessman (Benoit Poelvoorde). Even the group’s younger, former-pro female coach (Virginie Efira) has self-care issues.
