Trivia

The location of the party during which Owen is attacked by Benicio, is a house on Bay Boulevard in Lavallette, NJ, across the lagoon from West Point Island in Lavallette. West Point Island is also the summer home owned by none other than famed Jersey-born actor Joe Pesci. See more »

Goofs

Despite claiming to take place during 4th of July weekend, and the entire summer, the film was actually shot in the Fall. This is evidenced by many of the boardwalk shops in Seaside Heights being closed, and the sheer lack of people on the Boardwalk. This is further evidenced by the amount of sand present on the boardwalk in Lavallete. For safety reasons, the boardwalk is swept daily in Lavallette, and the boardwalk pavilions are not filled with sand during the summer as they are cleaned out in the Spring. See more »

Love Flourishes by the Water's Edge
27 March 2008 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Not knowing what to expect going in, I was pleasantly caught off guard by the simple elegance of "Greetings from the Shore," a terrifically earnest coming-of-age story of love and redemption set at the Jersey shore. Call it a love letter to the locale's sandy beauty, there's no denying the film's unabashed enthusiasm for the power of its setting.

"Greetings..." tells the story of Jenny Chambers (Kim Shaw), a Columbia University-bound girl reeling from the recent death of her father. Returning to the Jersey shore to work at a pizza parlor for the summer, Jenny's plans suddenly fall apart and she finds herself in rough waters teaching English to a group of nomadic, sea-legged (and less than amenable) waiters at a local boat club. Much more welcoming is "Catch" (Paul Sorvino), a retired sea veteran and mechanic who once fixed the Chambers family car and is now content to spend his days alone on his own landlocked vessel. When Jenny and one of the waiters, Benicio (David Fumero), develop a mutual attraction, Catch's fatherly protectiveness puts her in between a place of love's impetuousness and cautious practicality. The effect of this is that all are forced to reevaluate the plans, regrets and possibilities their lives have served up.

The cast is uniformly strong, the dialogue natural and assured, with the lush direction maximizing the scenery. Newcomer Kim Shaw brings with her a tough vulnerability and charm that will certainly make her an actress to watch, while Fumero offers many shades of complexity to a role that doesn't just require hot and brooding. Ever the consummate character actor, Sorvino exudes tenderness and heartbreak as a man torn up by his past. Other stand-outs include the scenery-chewing sinister club owner, "The Commodore" (Jay O. Sanders), and Benicio's pensive colleague, Lars (Lars Arentz-Hansen).

All in all, this is a well-made movie that satisfies the heart. Worth a couple of viewing hours for sure.
