SOUL SURFER (2011)
This biopic of Hawaii pro surfer Bethany Hamilton (pictured, left) tells the story of how she taught herself to again surf competitively after losing her left arm in a shark attack at age 13. The title, Soul Surfer, is a reference to the description of someone who surfs for pleasure, as well as a nod to Hamilton’s Christian faith. Much of the movie was filmed on Oahu’s North Shore on and on Kauai, where Hamilton’s family lives. Hamilton is played by AnnaSophia Robb (pictured, right).
