Storyline

When the Mason family moves to idyllic Palos Verdes, Calif., the father, Phil, loves it but the mother, Sandy, feels out of place among the fake tans and tennis skirts. Phil and Sandy's daughter, Medina, is a loner and outcast at school, while her charismatic brother, Jim, is effortlessly popular. When Medina and Jim take up surfing, they must prove their right to share the waves with the tough Bayboys gang that monopolizes their stretch of beach.

Give Cody Fern his Oscar
24 October 2018 | by georgiatarulliSee all my reviews

This film was pretty decent, average storyline, good actors, somewhat interesting characters, BUT the main part of the film that stood out to me was 100% Cody Ferns performance!

He captured his character so well and did a terrific job at making the audience fall in love with his character, Jim and empathise with him to the point where all you want to do is wrap him up in a big blanket and give him the love he deserves!

Overall the cast was great and the storyline felt so real and heartbreaking!

If you're debating whether or not you want to watch it, do yourself a favour and do it for Cody Ferns astounding performance!
