Faith-Based Film Starring Scott Eastwood, Coming to a Theatre Near You
"The Perfect Wave" Launches Screening Events Across the Country
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Producers of "The Perfect Wave," starring Scott Eastwood ("Gran Torino," "Flags of Our Fathers"), Rachel Hendrix ("October Baby") and Cheryl Ladd ("Charlie's Angels"), which opened in select markets on July 11, are working towards a goal of adding another 200 screenings by September, utilizing Tugg as a grassroots vehicle.
Tugg is a unique system that allows the public to request a movie screening at virtually any location they partner with in the U.S. Once the screening is requested, approved and tickets are sold, the screening is locked in for that location.
"We have had such an enormous response from those in the Christian community that were unable to see the film when it first opened a few weeks ago," said Director Bruce Macdonald. "My phone has been ringing off the hook from pastors and ministry leaders from all over the United States asking, 'When is "The Perfect Wave" coming to my city?' We are so excited to partner with Tugg to have a chance to share this film with them."
"The Perfect Wave," shares the story New Zealand native Ian McCormack (played by Eastwood), who 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, Annabel (portrayed by Hendrix). Ian's pursuit of her leads him to the African island of Mauritius, where his life is forever changed after his encounter with several 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 experience, Ian miraculously awakens with a transformed understanding of life and a chance to begin anew.
"The testimony of Ian McCormack is powerful and inspiring," said Ellery Sadler of InsideOut Magazine. "The obvious evidence of Christ's work in his life and through him blows me away. The undertone of Christianity and the message of His goodness is tastefully but clearly seen throughout the film. I highly recommend 'The Perfect Wave' to anyone looking for answers, looking to be re-inspired, or just looking for a fabulous movie for a Saturday night."
