The Flick: Chasing Mavericks
The Skinny: Academy Award-winner Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) and Michael Apted (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader) co-directed this biographical film based on the all too short life of big wave surfer Jay Moriarty (June 16, 1978–June 15, 2001).
The Players: Jonny Weston (John Dies at the End) stars as Jay, an extremely talented and athletic young man who dreams of riding the enormous, deadly waves off the coast of Princeton-By-The-Sea, California, known as Mavericks. As good of a surfer as he is, Jay knows he's not ready to tackle Mavericks alone so he seeks out a local legend named Frosty (Gerard Butler) to help him learn how to ride the big waves and live to tell about it. Elisabeth Shue and Abigail Spencer also star.
