Netflix viewers hail new true drama a ‘masterpiece’ and ‘must watch’ as ​​controversial decade-old story hits screens

Netflix’s new biopic has proven a hit with viewers, with fans raving about the “inspirational” true story.

Nyad became available on the streaming platform on November 3, and viewers flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, to praise the film.

Written by Julia Cox and directed by Elizabeth Chai Vasarhelyi and Jimmy Chin, the “must-see” film is based on the controversial true story of journalist Diana Nyad.

The remarkable true story is performed by an all-star cast, including Academy Award nominee Annette Bening, Academy Award winner Jodie Foster, and House of the Dragon’s Rhys Ifans.

The biopic tells the story of 60-year-old Nyad (Annette Bening), who becomes obsessed with an extreme 110-mile swim from Florida to Cuba – a feat that has always eluded her.

After decades away from the sport, the marathon swimmer is focused on becoming the first person to complete the epic challenge, dubbed the “Mount Everest” of swimming.

Nyad wanted to swim through the shark-infested waters of the Florida Strait without a shark cage, unlike Susie Maroney and Walter Boenisch, who made the journey in 1997 and 1998, respectively.

Although swimming seems to be an individual sport, the motivational speaker did not make the journey alone.

Her sailing team as well as her best friend and coach Bonnie Stoll (Jodie Foster) have been by her side every step of the four-year journey.

But not everyone was happy that this athlete took the treacherous swim in an effort to “ignite” her soul.

“You couldn’t survive when you were 28,” Stoll told the swimmer, adding, “You’re 60!”

The swim is no longer recognized by Guinness World Records as “record-breaking,” and has not been endorsed by any marathon swimming body, according to the British Daily Mail. Digital Spy.
