Last night I took my older girls to see "Soul Surfer," which I highly recommend, by the way.
That's the one about the girl surfer who had her arm bitten off by a shark and got back on the surfboard with one arm. It was filmed here in Hawaii.
(I was going to give it "two thumbs up" in my title, but I was afraid that would be tasteless.)
This movie had something for everyone: scenery, suspense, a shark attack...
Don't laugh. That shark attack was a big draw for my kids.
I really enjoyed it and came away inspired to be a better person.
No, seriously! It was a very inspiring movie. Even my 14-year-old was unable to be blase about it. We were able to have a great conversation about perserverance.
It was apparently based on the book Bethany Hamilton wrote about the incident. She is super-cool, as we can see from this photo.
