Trivia

Several elements from the original story have been changed: in the novel, Vicky and her family knew about her grandfather's condition the entire time, she had an older brother, her younger sister was much older and prettier, there was a third boy she was interested in, the plot element about drift nets was entirely absent, and her parents were present during the whole trip at the grandfather's house.

Goofs

In the opening scene, while Mischa Barton's character dreams of swimming as a mermaid, she does a somersault underwater that horribly reveals the fakeness of the tail: a flap of fabric from the waist is shown dangling, her knees scrunch up the material, and the entire waistline crinkles up.

What a great movie
1 April 2005 | by See all my reviews

A ring of Endless Light was an excellent movie. The cast that they picked was perfect and if fit with the age of the characters. Ryan Merriman did a fantastic job playing Adam, I wanted to play Vicky so i could kiss him. Mischa Barton play a good rendition of Vicky, i love how she did all the emotional scenes with James Whitmore who play Vicky's grandpa. Jarad who played Zach, was really hot in some scenes.... but all i am saying is that...this is a great family movie...it's so great, that it will make you want to go to the beach..haha...so go check it out when it comes on the Disney channel. The story is about Vicky Austin..who goes and visits her grandfather in seven bay islands. She goes there with her little sister, Suzy, and her little brother, rob. She meets this young marine biologist name Adam Eddigton, who shows Vicky there summer projects, which were dolphins. Somehow,Vicky feels something when she is with the dolphins, something like, they were trying to talk to her. that's all i am gonna tell you...you have to go and see it when it comes on.
