STARRING AnnaSophia Robb, Dennis Quaid, and Helen Hunt
DIRECTED BY Sean McNamara

What’s worse than getting attacked by a shark when you’re just 13 years old? Losing your arm as a result. Thankfully, champion surfer Bethany Hamilton didn’t let that get her down. After a nasty encounter with a tiger shark left her less one limb, she got right back on her board and continued shredding waves. Hamilton later parlayed her story into a memoir called Soul Surfer, which has now been adapted into a film starring AnnaSophia Robb. Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt costar as Hamilton’s supportive parents, while Carrie Underwood also lends support in her feature film debut.
