How often does a movie come out that you believe is worth your time to watch?
For me, it is pretty rare, but I'm interested in this one:http://www.soulsurferthemovie.com
- I bet you will be interested too.
In theaters on April 8th.
Based on a true story (the info below is from the above website):
Bethany has become a source of inspiration to millions through her
story of determination, faith and hope. Born into a family of surfers
on February 8, 1990, Bethany jumped on the board at a young age.
Bethany entered her first surf competition—winning both the short and
long board divisions at age eight. On Halloween morning 2003, Bethany
was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark, which bit off her left arm and
seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. After losing more than
60% of her blood and undergoing several surgeries, Bethany began her
recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude. Miraculously, just
one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water. Two months
later, Bethany placed fifth in the Open Women's division surf
competition and just over a year after the attack she won her first
National Title. In 2007, Bethany realized her dream and turned pro.
Bethany has since participated in numerous Association of Surfing
Professionals and World Tour Events with her major highlight being a
second place finish in the ASP 2009 World Junior Championships. "It
has been an incredible journey for me and now, I'm just so excited to
share it!" says Bethany.
"Bethany's story is so powerful," says Soul Surfer Director Sean
McNamara. "Most people would have given up after what happened to her,
but not only did she make an amazing return to surfing, she excelled
at it, and has turned her life into an inspiration for people all
around the world. She is someone you look at and think, 'If she can do
all the incredible things she's done, I can set the world on fire,
too.'" says Sean.
