I'd never heard of Jay Moriarity until a visit to the dentist when the conversation over my head was Chasing Mavericks. It caught my attention and I had to see it. Frosty (Gerry Butler) takes Jay (Jonny Weston) on to teach him to surf the big wave but really takes him into his heart as a son. Jay's father is absent and Jay is left to pick up the pieces by keeping his mom and home on track while going to school and keeping himself on track. It's a movie about learning about yourself, dealing with your issues and gaining inner strength to go through life. Jay is exposed to the darker side of teenage years with his friend Blond obviously dealing/using but Jay steps back from it and tries to help Blond better himself. There were times I was crying because of the emotion Gerry and Jonny bring out in their roles. A role like Frosty's needs a special person; one that has lost someone in life; to bring out the powerful emotions that come out in Gerry's depiction of Frosty and his understanding of Jay's situation. It's not just acting, it comes from inside and I think it is the real Gerry, not just an actor. Leven Rambin plays Kim (Jay's girlfriend) and Abigail Spencer plays Brenda (Frosty's wife) and the whole story comes alive. There is sadness with Brenda's death and Frosty trying to deal with going forward and doing a wretched job of it. Jay's shake up makes Frosty see that teamwork matters and there are others there to help when you need a shoulder to lean on. It's a sad ending to Jay's life but he lived his life to the fullest in the short time he lived and had a positive impact on everyone he met. The surfing, scenery and whole atmosphere of the film are amazing. The entire cast of the film did a fantastic job even though it took so long and the extras were piece de resistance - love them!

5.0 out of 5 stars encouraging story Oct. 26 2013

I gave this movie five stars for the following reasons: most of the storyline keeps to the true story of the lives of Jay Moriarity and Frosty Hesson; the acting is very good; the photography is spectacular; the message of Jay's life comes through powerfully with the truth wonderfully presented that one person's caring influence can change another person's life for good. Jay is the son of a father who abandoned him and his mother. His mother struggles through depression and poverty, taking Jay with her on the emotional rollercoaster. But Jay has a dream. A keen surfer named Frosty agrees to train Jay to surf the gigantic waves called mavericks off the California coast. In the special features, where the real people in the story are interviewed, the message of Jay's life is made clear: anyone can overcome his or her past with persevering in pursuing a dream. I highly recommend this movie.

I loved that this was just a good, simple movie about people, with totally cool surfing as the backdrop. No gratuitous sex or violence.
