Charlie Mole has scored Oliver Parker’s Swimming With Men, the new feelgood film starring Rob Brydon. The film closed the Edinburgh International Film Festival on 1 July and is due to release to UK cinemas Friday 6 July.
“With a gorgeous score from Charlie Mole that occasionally doffs its (swimming) cap at Ennio Morricone and David Raedeker’s stunning underwater photography, Swimming With Men is British film-making at its eccentrically beautiful best.” – Click here for full review
