|8x10 Polaroid Transfer|
Took Dear Daughter to see Soul Surfer yesterday... WOW. While it is probably not going to win any Oscars it was truly a great, family friendly, inspirational movie. For those of you that don't know, it's the true story of Bethany Hamilton, a surfer who was attacked by a shark as a teen and lost her left arm. With the help of her very supportive family, friends and community, she not only recovers but goes on to achieve her lifelong dream of becoming a professional surfer.
Other than the actual shark scene (it's obvious when it's coming, so cover the little one's eyes), there is not a single inappropriate scene or word in the entire film. You will see some old favorite faces in the cast... Helen Hunt (who doesn't LOVE Helen Hunt?), Dennis Quaid, Kevin Sorbo, Craig T. Nelson (COACH!) and the film debut of my favorite American Idol, Carrie Underwood. I'm still trying to figure out how they made AnnaSophia Robb look like she had no arm... film effects can be truly amazing. Bring your tissues and the entire family because this is a wave you don't want to miss...
