Soul Surfer

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...

Ah I can help you with that one she wore a green sleeve throughout filming which makes her arm easier to "remove from film" then they retouch the rest with computer graphics. They had a show on it the other night! Happy Monday : )

Well, dang, nobody told me Kevin Sorbo's in it! Call me shallow, but I am *totally* more interested now ;)

Sounds like a good movie! I'll remember the name :) We most likely won't see it in theaters (mom rarely goes to theaters... we didn't even go for the new Harry Potter movie D: Hahaha), but when it comes out on Netflix... ;)
*Hugs!*

EST Diet Hoodia Gordonii (60 capsules) 8. The receptors in the brain send you the signal, making you feel hungry. Soon after, we began the four hour drive back to Capetown. Thus, whatever name you say the African hoodia cactus is a beautiful plant as its flowers are pale purple and appear after the plant reaches maturity. If you will do that, we are sure that you will be interested yourself about buying this product called Hoodia Gordonii Plus.
