Catch this over the weekend: 'Soul Surfer.'
Based on the true story of surfer Bethany Hamilton whose arm was bitten off by a shark and has since come back to become a top surfing champion.
“It’s funny,” Bethany says, “you would think having your arm bitten off would really hurt. But there was no pain at the time.”
She said in a loud but not panicky voice, “I just got attacked by a shark,” and started paddling toward shore.
Wow. This inspirational action/drama is the perfect movie to take your niece to.
Starring Dennis Quaid, Oscar winner Helen Hunt, and Carrie Underwood in her first feature film role, with Anna Sophie Robb portraying Bethany Hamilton.
The attack on Bethany became a worldwide news story and was featured on Oprah, The Ellen Degeneres Show, and Larry King. Her autobiography 'Soul Surfer' (New York Times Best Seller List) sold over one million copies.
