PlotEdit

At Ocean High School in Hua Hin District, Nam (Luangsodsai Anupart) is a swimmer who does well despite a lack of training. He is popular on campus and has many girlfriends, inspiring envy among his peers, and also has a love of pornography which he needs to watch to sleep. However, his relationship with his father, swimming coach Neung (Nappon Gomarachun), is strained. Nine (Ausavaterakul Ausavapat), does Nam's homework and tutors him so Nam can teach him how to swim. Another swimmer, Muek (Beam Prapangkorn), becomes Nam's roommate. After Muek moves in, Nam is less interested in watching pornography. However, Muek has a girlfriend, Nune (Kitwiriya Natcharee), an actress, who shows up for the Super League Swimming Competition at Changmai. This turns out to be a competition for love. But during the process the two boys find themselves falling in love with each other.

ProductionEdit

The film represented a comeback for actor Nappon Gomarachun, who last worked in the film industry five years ago. He said that Director Rachi Kusonkusiri wanted to make the film, and it reflects how common disagreements between parents and children in Thailand were.[1]

ReceptionEdit

The film was released on 22 October 2015.[2] Madame Aung Tour, writer for Thai Rath, said that while the title Water Boyy created the impression that the film is about swimming, it is more about a father-son relationship and also a love story. She recommended the film for its atmosphere.[3] Coconuts Bangkok stated that without the LGBT theme, the film would be a generic love story.[4]
