Charlie St. Cloud - Movie Review

I won a pair of tickets to an advanced screening to Charlie St. Cloud tonight and just got back home.

The movie stars Zac Efron as Charlie St. Cloud, a great sailor with a bright future ahead of him (a sailing scholarship at an Ivy League school). It's cut short when an accident takes his little brother from him. He doesn't go to school and sticks around instead, to keep a promise he made to his brother. Five years later, an old high school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) comes back and Charlie becomes torn between his promise to his brother and moving on with his life and being with Tess.

While I don't typically watch drama, I thought Charlie St. Cloud was a pretty good movie. Zac Efron plays his role well (though I can't help but think of High School Musical when I see him haha) and the story is interesting. It's no Inception though.

Charlie St. Cloud comes out this Friday, July 30. For more information on the movie, go here.
