A Swell Movie!

“"Back home, being young is just something you do until you become an adult. Around here, it's different. Here, it's everything."

Big Wednesday has some spectacular surfing scenes, but it is not a movie about waves. It is a film about being young, being in love, being good friends, going to the beach, doing some crazy things. Surfing is just the climax of a dearest moment in life, and the Big Swell you wait for is a symbol of whatever can be great and beautiful and free...

Then, it is a film about how you feel when everything has to change.

Great story, great acting, great photography, great music. It's set in California in the years of rebellion and of Vietnam war, but its essence is out of time.

Give me the goosebumps every time I see it again.” read more
