Ride the tide...
This is a film with true soul and integrity. A coming of age story about the human experience & relationships. It doesn't rely on a host of Hollywood names or a big bag of special effects to carry it. The main character Jay Moriarity is perfectly played by Jonny Weston, similarly Gerard Butler is excellent in his role as "Frosty', an old school surfer who is part of an elite group of friends who ride the Maverick, but the real star of the show is the jaw-dropping visuals of the sea. Waves rise to fill the entire screen and the sheer intensity of nature explodes in full surround sound.
You don't have to be a surf fan to watch this film either. You'll be entertained and it will touch your heart. Go see it...
