Friday night, December 29, Sharon and I watched Nyad on Netflix. It fits loosely into our annual trek to see all of the potential Oscar nominated films. The GoldDerby site has the film in the running for best supporting actress.

Nyad is a biographical sports drama film directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin. It was written by Julia Cox based on Nyad's autobiography Find a Way.

The movie stars Annette Bening as swimmer Diana Nyad, Jodie Foster, and Rhys Ifans. It describes her efforts to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.

At the 81st Golden Globe Awards, Bening and Foster received nominations for Best Actress-Drama and Best Supporting Actress respectively. The film is not nominated for a Golden Globe.

While I don't think that Nyad will win any Golden Globes or Oscars, I enjoyed it more than I expected. Both of Foster and Bening's performance are good.
