Clint Eastwood’s son and rising Hollywood star Scott Eastwood (“Gran Torino,” “Flags of Our Fathers”), Rachel Hendrix (“October Baby”) and Cheryl Ladd (“Charlie’s Angels”), star in the Christian film, “The Perfect Wave,” which is set to open in select theatres on July 11. “The Perfect Wave” follows the true story of Ian McCormack, who grew up surfing the waters of New Zealand.
The film, which was shot on location in South Africa, Australia, Bali, Mauritius and New Zealand, opened in South Africa earlier this year and is already receiving positive reactions from U.S. audiences.
“The Perfect Wave’ is a strong witness to the redemptive power of Jesus Christ,” said Jim Young of Crossroads Church UMC in Jacksonville, Florida. “It is excellent for youth groups, college and career, as well as the whole family.”
In “The Perfect Wave,” Ian (played by Eastwood), yearning for adventure, sets out on a journey with his best friend to surf some of the most famous and challenging destinations throughout Australia, Southeast Asia and Africa in search of the mythical “perfect wave.”
During his adventure, Ian falls in love with a beautiful, free-spirited girl, Annabelle (portrayed by Hendrix). Ian’s pursuit of her leads him to the African island of Mauritius, where his life is forever changed by an encounter with a school of box jellyfish during a fateful evening swim. Infamous for venom so deadly that a single sting can kill a man, Ian is stung multiple times, and pronounced dead shortly after his arrival at the hospital.
Following a divine post-mortem encounter, Ian miraculously awakens with a transformed understanding of life and a chance to begin anew.
