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.

Jennifer Garner brings it..
22 January 2018 | by BatmanFunReviewsSee all my reviews

When the situation at her idyllic Palos Verdes home turns volatile, young Medina attempts to surf her way to happiness. The Tribes of Palos Verdes benefits from 2 strong perfomances from it's 2 female leads Maika Monroe and Jennifer Garner who are terrific on their roles both as the daughter and the mother also the film does feel real at times with the story that it tells of how once place can take lots of things from certain people and also how to deal with a divorce or problems with the parents of even ourselves and that part is the surf for the main girl although to be honest the film at times does get a bit over the top with certain characters or situations surrounding them plus Milo Gibson's character was wasted and Alicia Silverstone's part could have been played by anyone. Still tho it's a dramatic film with some excellent perfomances and a powerful message about loss, divorce and overall love in general and it definitely isn't the kind of 5.4/10 movie. (7.0/10)
