What to expect in Nyad?

“A remarkable true story of tenacity, friendship and the triumph of the human spirit, NYAD recounts a riveting chapter in the life of world-class athlete Diana Nyad,” reads the synopsis. “Three decades after giving up marathon swimming in exchange for a prominent career as a sports journalist, at the age of 60, Diana becomes obsessed with completing an epic swim that always eluded her: the 110 mile trek from Cuba to Florida, often referred to as the ‘Mount Everest’ of swims. Determined to become the first person to finish the swim without a shark cage, Diana goes on a thrilling, four-year journey with her best friend and coach Bonnie Stoll and a dedicated sailing team.”

Nyad serves as the narrative feature directorial debut of documentary filmmakers Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin (Free Solo, The Rescue). The film is written by Julia Cox, based on Nyad’s Find A Way memoir. Joining Bening and Foster are Rhys Ifans, Ethan Jones Romero, Luke Cosgrove, Jeena Yi, and Eric T. Miller.

Executive producers are Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, Michael Heimler, Vanessa Humphrey, Julia Cox, and D. Scott Lumpkin, with Andrew Lazar and Teddy Schwarzman producing.
