A Young Girl, Her Family, Her Faith and Courage and Her Surfing Board....
Movies that feature a teen that finds her inner strength and overcomes the odds are exactly new. I know stories like this are usually built on cliché; and I have often said that sometimes (or oftentimes), life is cliché. “Soul Surfer” does have an incredible story to work with fortunately, as it dramatizes the life of pro-surfer Bethany Hamilton.

Despite her handicap and the obvious emotional shock, she …
