Gripping family drama keeps Swimming Upstream from going under. Full Review
David Sterritt
Christian Science Monitor
Rush and Davis shine, and the drama is engrossingly told until it turns sadly sentimental in the last minutes. Full Review
David Stratton
Distinguished by some unusually fine performances, but the lack of a satisfactory third act diminishes overall result. Full Review
