Soul Surfer

A film telling the inspirational story of Bethany Hamilton, the then 13 year old girl who survived a shark attack while surfing, will be released this summer in the UK.

Bethany Hamilton will be played by Anna Sophia Robb with supporting acts from a few celeb  juniors. Jack Nicholson’s daughter, Lorraine, and Pierce Brosnan’s son, Sean, will play Hamilton’s best friend and brother respectively.

The attack left Hamilton with a severed left arm. After losing over 60% of her blood, and making it through several surgeries without infection, Bethany was on her way to recovery with an unbelievably positive attitude.

Miraculously, just one month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water to continue pursuing her goal to become a professional surfer. In January of 2004, Bethany made her return to surf competition; placing 5th in the Open Women’s division of that contest. With no intention of stopping, Bethany continued to enter and excel in competition.

Just over a year after the attack she took 1st place in the Explorer Women’s division of the 2005 NSSA National Championships – winning her first National Title.

This is her story (with a few creative liberties I’m sure).
