Storyline

Good boy Mike Mayer is looking at a fine future and enjoys life with Wisconsin small town friends and steady girlfriend Carrie Beal, unaware that she's been questioning their very young love for a long time. After a terrible sudden accident leaves Mike a quadriplegic and his bitterness pushes Carrie into further uncertainty, she eventually does what none of the gang could imagine: she breaks things off and finally leaves him. Carrie departs for New York to pursue an undefined 'ambition', moving in with classmate Simon Rhodes. She starts a love affair with Paul Elliot 'Kilroy' Fraser. However he has his own nagging secrets, and her past needs dealing with. Written by KGF Vissers

I liked this movie
20 May 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I haven't read the book, so I can't comment on whether the adaption was good or bad. The Dive from Clausen's Pier was in my opinion a good movie on the whole. It's not normally my kind of movie, I watched it mostly because of Michelle Trachtenberg. The story is about how an accident changes the lives of a group of people, and especially Mike Mayor (Will Estes) and his girlfriend Carrie Beal (Michelle Trachtenberg). It was in my opinion a bit too short, and I wish some characters could have been explored and developed more. Other than that, it was good.

I was pleased to see Trachtenberg in this movie, and from all her film and TV works, I consider this to be one of her best performances, possibly to share the first spot with Mysterious Skin. She's not just a beautiful face, she's a talented actress and I believe that with time she will grow and develop even more.
