13 year-old Bethany Hamilton is a champion surfer who was born to be in the water. But after a fun night out night surfing and what should be a fun day in the water, she is attacked by a shark and loses her arm. Rushed to the hospital, she remains calm, and maintains her faith in God. Now she has to re-learn how to do everything with only one arm - including how to surf. It will take her friends, family, and her Christian faith to get her back into the water, but if that is where she is meant to be, she will find a way to get there.Written by

Soul Surfer isn't a great movie, but it does have a lot of heart. Plus, it's hard to dislike a movie that stars AnnaSophia Robb -- she's delightful. Carrie Underwood, on the other hand, is a better singer than she is an actress. This is an inspiring story, and it's kind of refreshing to see a Hollywood film that is so unabashedly faith-affirming.
