It’s 9:30 and my 6 year is still awake. We drove back from a weekend summer getaway and he was so exhausted he slept for an hour and a half. Of course, it was around dinner time so I had a feeling it was going to be rough to get him to sleep. So, when the constant calls from the bedroom began, I decided I would just have him come out and watch a little TV. We found the movie Given. I didn’t really read the description, I just thought it was a surfing movie that he would find interesting.
Boy, was it so much more. Narrated by 6 yr. old Given, the movie follows legendary surfers Aamion and Daize Goodwin (Given’s parents) from their island home of Kauai through 15 different countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations.
There were so many things I liked about this move:
This sense of excitement for travel and experiencing new things is what every travel movie should do for every viewer. We will be talking about this movie for awhile and definitely recommend it to everyone.
We watched the movie on Netflix but if you aren’t a subscriber, you can download directly from their website.
