Anchor Bay Entertainment presents the inspiring story about surfing and second chances, The Perfect Wave, starring Scott Eastwood (yes, he's father is Clint), Rachel Hendrix (no, her father is not Jimi), Cheryl Ladd and Patrick Lyster. Based on true events, The Perfect Wave follows avid surfer, and future ordained minister, Ian McCormack, on his travels to find the perfect wave. This visually-stunning film, shot in exotic locations–New Zealand, Bali, Sri Lanka, South Africa and the island of Mauritius–will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand on September 16. Write the date down, please. The DVD will be easier to buy than to escape from Alcatraz.
Eastwood delivers a breakthrough performance as McCormack, who leads a mundane life in Christchurch, New Zealand. At 24, he sets off in search of the perfect wave. He drags his closest surfing buddy, tempting fate and the call for a wild adventure. His overly protective, religious mother reluctantly sends him on his way tearfully reminding him if he gets in trouble, turn to God..
Living in the moment can have its thrills–including a romance with beautiful kindred soul Annabel (Hendrix)–as well as its sacrifices. And following a horrific accident and near-death experience on the Island of Mauritius, Ian receives a glimpse into eternity and a "meeting" with Christ that changes his life forever. It is an inspirational true story about the power of faith, the love of family and one man’s search for The Perfect Wave.
The film’s talented cast also features award-winning professional surfers, Matt Bromley and Rosy Hodge. The DVD and Blu-ray special features include an interview with director Bruce Macdonald; The Perfect Wave: It’s Not Just About Love featurette; Perfect Wave music video, Collide: Uphill Struggle of a Downhill Skater featurette and behind-the-scenes footage.
Let's hear an amen!
