Soul Surfer

Paige Taliaferro, Associate Editor-In-Chief

“Based on a true story” are always the most heart wrenching films. “Soul Surfer” that releases TODAY is no different. This film is the story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton who lives in Kauai, Hawaii and lives for the waves. Her life took a crazy turn on a Halloween day when a tiger shark attacked her and she lost her arm. This story may sound familiar because it was highly publicized a few years ago by People Magazine. Now her amazing story has become a movie.  Dive into the emotional roller coaster Hamilton went through during her recovery and the time following. Be inspired by the great determination she had in eventually getting back on her board. As an added bonus, Carrie Underwood stars in this movie, one of her first times on the big screen.
