Rowing info
Although the movie stars Dominic West, who played Donald McDonald in the most famous rowing movie of all time, True Blue, alas we don't see Mr West picking up an oar again in this particular film.

There's a brief clip (3 seconds) of a women's crew rowing, towards the end of the film, some of which is used in the movie trailer which you can watch at

but that's all folks.
