The ending on this movie was not the same as book. I was disappointed because I really liked the book.

2023 movie #129. 1968. Ned (Lancaster) is visiting some neighbors 8 houses away from his own. He decides to take a swim in every pool along the way. As he get closer to his house it's clear something has gone wrong for Ned. Interesting movie. Lancaster wore only swim trunks.
