Product Description

Based on an acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love.

Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar® winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.

After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.

From Amazon.co.uk

Teen heartthrob Zac Efron (High School Musical, 17 Again) makes an appealing, and wise, choice as the star of Charlie St. Cloud. Efron is able to flex his dramatic acting abilities and can stretch, ever so slightly, into a more adult role, without alienating or being off-putting to his dedicated young fans. And Efron shows signs of being a terrific young actor, with nuanced skills that have perhaps been overlooked until now, because of his appealing pinup-boy looks. Efron is delicious eye candy in Charlie St. Cloud, no question (though he has to share some of that role with the beautiful British Columbia coastline where the film is set), but he also carries the entire film, which manages to be family drama, tragedy, adventure, and budding love story--with a good dose of "live your life to the fullest" advice built in. Efron plays the title character, a gifted student and sailor who gets a full scholarship to Stanford. But right after graduation, Charlie is involved in a life-changing tragedy--one that shatters his family and his own sense of his place in the world. Efron's Charlie is a lost young man, dedicated to the aftereffects of the tragic accident, and turns from promising young upstart to pitiable recluse--so reclusive that he lives and works at the local graveyard. The entire cast is wonderful, and they put their hearts into the sad, yet ultimately uplifting story. Young Charlie Tahan is winsome as Charlie's younger brother, Sam. Kim Basinger, too long away from the big screen, is grounded and believable as the boys' hard-working single mother. Ray Liotta plays a memorable cameo as a paramedic who helps save Charlie after the accident. And Amanda Crew is spunky and adorable as the independent young sailor with a secret crush on Charlie--the "old" Charlie, who was still interested in embracing life--and with possibly the only lifeline that Charlie might actually grab. The chemistry between Efron and Crew is sparkly, and Efron fans will enjoy seeing their idol in more mature love scenes. But not too mature--the raciest of the romance scenes involves Efron (not Crew) taking off his shirt--to fans' delight. If Charlie St. Cloud isn't too original in its plotting, nor especially crisp in its direction, it doesn't matter--Efron's screen appeal is plenty to propel both the story and the action. Efron fans of all ages will enjoy watching the young actor begin the process of growing up--just a bit--onscreen. --A.T. Hurley

I really can't understand the drubbing this movie has taken from the so called professional critics. All that I can think is that they are so prejudice against Efron due to his past Disney credentials, that they don't want to give him the credit for being a 'real actor' or consider him in any film that breaks him from the Disney High School Musical mold.

I have to admit that when I heard some of the reviews for this film I had few expectations for it. How wrong could I be. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Never did I clock watch, become bored or fidget in my seat. It kept me constantly involved and engaged me to the point I wanted to go to the cinema to see it again. When it comes out on DVD it will definitely be a must have buy for me. This film shows Efron is not just a 'pretty boy' teenage pin up with little to recommend him. He is a talented performer who just happens to be able to sing as well as act and act well. Please don't be swayed by the so called critics who demand art house complexity in order to praise a movie. Please put away any High School Musical bias you may have and watch it for yourself, you may be surprised how much you enjoy it.

The critics were harsh regarding this film, but as other reviews say: see this for yourself!

Charlie St. Cloud is a 2010 romantic drama film based on Ben Sherwood's best-selling novel. The film is directed by Burr Steers and stars Zac Efron and Amanda Crew.

Charlie St. Cloud (Zac Efron) is a sailor who wins a professional boating race on his sailboat, the "Splendid Splinter", along with his younger brother Sam (Charlie Tahan).

Later that night, Charlie is supposed to go to a graduation party with his friends, but his mother Claire (Kim Basinger) makes him babysit Sam. Charlie tries to sneak out and go to the party. But, he is caught by Sam, and Sam asks Charlie to drive him to his friend Tommy's house. On the way, they are involved in an accident and Sam dies. Charlie then makes a discovery: he can talk to the dead (and pretty much hang out with them, including his dead brother)

Five years later, Charlie, who gave up his scholarship and mournful over Sam's loss, is now caretaker at Waterside Cemetery, where he and Sam can be 'together'.

During a trip into town, Charlie visits the boat docks and meets Tess Carroll (Amanda Crew), a sailor who dreams of one day sailing around the world. Charlie has the hots for Tess, as she does for him.

Giving away more would be wrong, but Charlie has to face a choice between his vigil for the dead Sam, or real life and a shot at love. Herein, perhaps an implicit message lies for many of us: learn to let go of the past, and embrace and live your life fully, in all its imperfections.

Never corny or silly, this movie weaves its charm well. A major factor is the two leads, who are not only extraordinarily beautiful, but can also act. I loved Zac Efron after 'Me and Orson Wells', and newcomer Amanda Crew shines too.

Highly recommended.

This is a film that could have been poignant; however, it becomes one that tries to be too sentimental and loses any sensible storyline less than twenty minutes in. I actually thought Efron's performance as Charlie was quite good. Unfortunately, the script, dialogue and poorly written flashbacks drag the movie and the message it is trying to convey, downhill. It seemed stretched and uncomfortable, particularly as the majority of the supporting cast were fairly poor - Augustus Prew was especially cringeworthy as Charlie's British friend.
Zac Efron gives a sense of what Charlie is feeling after the loss of his brother. However, the cheesy pop tunes and unnatural actions from the rest of the cast detract from this performance. To sum it up, Zac Efron's performance actually saved this film from being worthy of one star - and I didn't expect to be saying that.

I think this is such an amazing film - genuinely. To be honest I am not really a fan of Zac Efron but he is absoultely amazing in this and my eyes were flooding so much. Beautiful film and a saddening one at that. Well worth watching for anyone. I have guy friends who also like the film so it's not an overly girly one.

this is a fantastic film. I was enthralled the whole way through, and has gone on to watch it many times. One of the best fils that I have seen in a long time. Zac Efron is brilliant to watch, and the way that he portrays Charlie he captures the emotional bond between him and Sam brilliantly. It makes it very believable.

This was a sweet and at times emotional family film. It was a little bit over-long, hence the 4* instead of 5*. There were a few plot threads that just weren't necessary, but on the whole it was a nice way to spend an afternoon. Zac is a surprisingly good actor, capturing the yo-yo of emotions that his character goes through with astonishing realness. I was so absorbed in what was going on that I genuinely didn't see the plot twist coming. There were obvious moral overtones to it, kind of like an old-fashioned fable, about letting go because holding onto the past can damage the now.

I enjoyed it.

I must agree with every review here that is defending Zac Efrons acting abilities and this film! It is a top notch romantic film up there with the best of them and whatever magic this lad has he has it in bucket loads!

As one of the older generation who remembers David Cassidy from the 1970`s, Efron oozes the same charm and charisma as he did and as one review already mentioned, I also think there`s jelousy aimed at this kid from the so called critcs for both his looks and his charm! He`ll probably go on to be like George Clooney who is just an older version of him.
