Tuesday has become my movie day with Lindsay. We love it.
Today we decided to check out Soul Surfer. It looked like one of those overcoming-all-odds-makes-you-grateful-for-all-you-have kind of movies.
We were not disappointed. What a soul-moving tale of triumph over mega difficult odds. Of gaining perspective. And how love can help you overcome anything.
Helen Hunt and Dennis Quaid were at their best as hippie parents who passionately supported their daughter’s surfing dreams before and after the horrific shark attack. I felt like I was watching a real family and totally slipped into the film.
AnnaSophia Robb did a terrific job embodying all the emotions Bethany had to experience. Wow. She’s definitely one to watch.
Kevin Sorbo gives a great performance as the family friend whose quick thinking saves Bethany’s life.
The fact that this is a true story is heartbreaking. But then you see how much spirit and courage Bethany had and you realize how much is possible in life.
A definite must see this spring. If you’d like to learn more about Bethany’s true story and the movie check out: http://www.soulsurferthemovie.com/page/true-story.html
