Via Mr. Man: The 2021 Israeli gay movie The Swimmer isn't just one of the hottest gay movies of the decade — it's one of the hottest gay movies of all time.
We know them's fightin' words, but hear us out. Five shredded young men with nothing to hide cooped up together at a training camp for Olympic swimmers?
It can't be wrong when it feels so right ... So what is The Swimmer about? The movie — which one critic eloquently refers to as a “bracingly clever celebration of youthful physicality” — stars the blonde and beautiful Omer Perelman Striks as Erez, a gay man competing against four other men at this elite training camp.
At the end of the camp, one of these five swimmers will be chosen to compete in the Olympic Games. A gay man not used to hiding his queerness, Erez practically floats into the training camp, expressing his sexuality through everything from his clothes to his mannerisms.
