4/10 ?
A shirtless boy standing and sitting in light blue shorts. Pic from the trailer. Also other boys in shorts including dark blue, green and white with stripes. And men also in swim shorts with a belt. One boy in shorts with H-style suspenders.

The setting looks modern, but it’s obviously in 1944 as there are also other people in historical swimwear shown. So most likely not of shiny fabric but cotton. (Sorry, I’ve seen that too late).

But the movie looks still quite interesting. But I haven’t seen it completely, yet.

Rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment: Some nice swimming und even underwater scenes of the two or three brothers. Unfortunately few and brief scenes near the beginning only. Sorry, I’m running out of good movies. Please make some suggestions!

14 or 15 yo Michael-James Wixted as David in beige or similar, striped swim shorts, his older film brother (Hart Bochner) in dark blue or green shorts. Not sure about the younger boy, Andrew (Brad Savage, pic below “Salem’s Lot”, “The Apple Dumpling Gang”) who’s sitting in a boat.

Also nice bedroom scenes (other blog, rating 7), will also soon be updated (dorm).

Quite interesting and handsome boys, but for the brief shorts scenes, rating 4-5 only.
