Annette Bening in Nyad

Nyad, never, ever give up

Nyad tells the story of Diana Nyad’s epic marathon swim from Cuba to Florida, a distance of over 100 miles. Nyad was 64 years old at the time. She swam nonstop for 52 hours and 54 minutes. It’s a scripted film with Annette Bening playing Diana Nyad, but it incorporates some documentary-like moments using archival footage.
