Olympic champion Ian Thorpe served as consultant on the film, which also stars Jason Isaacs.

Australian actor Levi Miller channels his inner Ian Thorpe — quite literally — in this exclusive first-look still from upcoming swimming drama Streamline.

Being sold at the virtual American Film Market by Arclight Films, Streamline centers on a 15-year-old swimming prodigy with the world at his feet. But when his long-absent father is released from prison and shows up unannounced, it triggers a childhood trauma and he self-destructs, derailing a promising career.

Miller, who starred opposite Hugh Jackman in Joe Wright's Peter Pan reimagining Pan and more recently appeared in A Wrinkle in Time, plays the central role, and worked alongside five-time Olympic gold medalist and Australian sporting icon Thorpe, who consulted and prepared him for the part and helped him understand the cutthroat world of competitive swimming. Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter, The Death of Stalin) portrays the dad.

Miller and Isaacs previously starred alongside each other in Red Dog: True Blue.

Commercials and music video director Tyson Wade Johnston wrote the screenplay for Streamline, which marks his feature directorial debut. Blake Northfield and Nathan Walker of Australian production company Bronte Pictures are producing alongside Jay Douglas of LA-based Rebellion Studios, which was the film's senior financier. Rebellion's Mary Doumith, Angelica Nunez, Nav Gupta are executive producing.

Arclight are looking after worldwide rights at the virtual AFM. Arclight’s chairman Gary Hamilton, Ryan Hamilton and Michelle Krumm are executive producers.
