Young Woman and the Sea | 'Jellyfish' Clip - Daisy Ridley

  • last month
Watch this tense clip from Young Woman and the Sea as Trudy Ederle (played by Daisy Ridley) swims through a massive group of jellyfish. Young Woman and the Sea is an upcoming movie about the true story of Trudy Ederle, the first woman to successfully swim the English Channel.

Daisy Ridley stars as the accomplished swimmer who was born to immigrant parents in New York City in 1905. Through the steadfast support of her older sister and supportive trainers, she overcame adversity and the animosity of a patriarchal society to rise through the ranks of the Olympic swimming team and complete the staggering achievement – a 21-mile trek from France to England.

Young Woman and the Sea, which also stars Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Stephen Graham, Kim Bodnia, Christopher Eccleston, Jeanette Hain, Sian Clifford, and Glenn Fleshler, is directed by Joachim Rønning and written by Jeff Nathanson, based on the book “Young Woman and the Sea: How Trudy Ederle Conquered the English Channel and Inspired the World” by Glenn Stout. The producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, Chad Oman, and Jeff Nathanson, with John G. Scotti, Daisy Ridley, and Joachim Rønning serving as executive producers.

Young Woman and the Sea is coming to theaters nationwide in a special engagement on May 31, 2024.
