Charlie St. Cloud

Zac Efron stars as Charlie St. Cloud, a small-town hero and an accomplished sailor who has it all: the adoration of his mother and younger brother, and a Stanford scholarship. His bright future is cut short when tragedy strikes, taking his dreams with it. Now Charlie is torn between honoring a promise he made years ago and pursuing his newfound love with a former high-school classmate. Based on the acclaimed bestseller, comes a story of hope, second chances and the transformative power of love, also starring Ray Liotta and Academy Award® winner Kim Basinger.

Guest Review by my mom:

Although I was intrigued by Charlie's ability to stay in touch with his deceased brother, I thought it could have moved along more quickly, not the plot, which I thought was quite clever, but the way it was played out. I did, however, appreciate the theme of undying brotherly love and the dimensional, other-worldly feel to the story. Worth watching, this movie provokes thoughts about our ability to love unconditionally and about life after death.

Thanks so much to Universal Studios Entertainment for sending me a review copy of this film.
