The real treat here is the fabulous original music, sometimes in the background, but more often performed.

The New York Times by Lisa Kennedy

Learn to Swim is lovely to behold, but the sullen artist at the center feels too often like he’s drowning in melancholia and might take us down with him.

Los Angeles Times by Noel Murray

Tommy just riffs freely, aping the moody, improvisatory style of classic jazz as he works some rich variations on the all-too-common story of an artist knocked around by a rough romance.
