SOUL SURFER ( PG)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

Stars: An­na­Sophia Robb, He­len Hunt

Di­rec­tor: Sean Mc­Na­mara

Avail­able: Wed­nes­day on DVD and BD It may be dra­mat­i­cally un­con­vinc­ing and a lit­tle too pre­oc­cu­pied with genre con­ven­tion but this based-on-a-true-story sports flick about Hawaiian teen surfer girl Bethany Hamil­ton, who had her arm taken in a shark at­tack yet fought her way back into com­pet­i­tive surf­ing, still man­ages to be some­what in­spi­ra­tional. It’s overworked and the weighty ma­te­rial has sure been Dis­ney-fied, but it gets by on its heart.

Ex­tras: ★ ★ ★ Mak­ing-of, short deleted scenes col­lec­tion, pro­duc­tion fea­turettes plus 30-minute doco on the real Bethany Hamil­ton.
