Charlie (Zac Efron) St.Cloud is a sailboat racer, along with his little brother Sam (Charlie Tahan). Charlie got a sailing scholarship to a very prestigious school, but before he left he promised Sam that they would practice baseball every day at the cannon sound, in the Forest near their house. He had bold plans for the future, but everything is stopped when Charlie and his little brother get into an car accident, that killed Sam. Charlie quit sailing, put his boat away and never took it out. He lived near the Forrest along the beach, and worked at the cemetery. It had been a few years and Charlie still went out every night and played baseball with his brother, until he saw a girl he had once sailed against, she was now preparing to sail in a very long competition, her and Charlie fell in love. They had wonderful times together, until Tess (Amanda Crew) Carroll was reported missing, and Charlie found that he had been in love with a ghost, he just didn't know. But somehow, though every one thought Tess had died he knew she wasn't he knew where she was headed, he took off sailing after her, he missed a game with his brother, but it was time, his brother knew that. once Charlie found the ship he jumped in after her, he finally found her body washed up on some rocks, he lied next to her he held her to try and keep her from dying, search crews found them at the edge of their life's, but they were saved. After they got out of the hospital, Charlie and Tess talked, Tess said she had dreamed of Charlie, they did things together and she was scared of him because the dreams were so vivid, like it all really happened. Charlie told her it wasn't a dream he proved it to her. She asked Charlie if he would go with her, if he would sail on her race with her, he said yes.
So, I loved this movie. It was filled with beautiful scenery, and wonderful shots. I think Zac Efron really showed a set of skills we haven't seen before. It made my "Ultimate Movie List", it was great. And it was honestly pretty clean, it had a few sexual references, a little bit of language. It had some really intense parts, I wouldn't recommend for people who have trouble with death, near death, and strong emotion. Some of the moments were really unexpected and I loved them. You could call it a 'tear jerker', but it was great.
To sum it up, go watch it.
