2010. 95 min.

With Zac Efron, Charlie Tahan and Amanda Crew.

Director: Burr Steers.


Rating: 3/5

Charlie St Cloud (Efron) is about to go to university on a sailing scholarship when tragedy strikes and his younger brother, Sam (Tahan), is killed in a car accident Charlie caused.

Five years later everyone has moved on except Charlie. He gave up his dream of going to university and now works as a cemetery caretaker.

Every day at sundown he plays catch with Sam’s spirit in the woods – something he promised Sam he’d do before his death.

Then Charlie’s former sailing rival, Tess (Crew), returns to town to prepare for a solo voyage around the world. He’s torn between his love for his brother and his newfound friendship with Tess.

The movie drags and the plot is predictable but Efron shows he has graduated from the High School Musical franchise and it’s a must-see if you want to see him shirtless. But this flick doesn’t come close to Ghost or The Sixth Sense.

Bonus: lots, including featurettes and a commentary.
