|Longboarding soul surfer Steve Addington (Matthew McConaughey) returns to Malibu for the summer to find his cool hometown vibe corrupted. New sponsorship demands Addington to expand into Virtual Reality Video Games and Reality TV. Unwilling to participate in this new digital reality, he chooses to spend his summer surfing his home break. But in a twist-of-fate, the waves go flat. Out of money, his expense accounts cancelled, and betrayed by his buddies, Addington is backed into a harsh corner.|
Aided by his manager (Woody Harrelson), his mentor (Scott Glenn), his guardian angel (Willie Nelson), and his summer lover (Alexie Gilmore), Addington has a chance of keeping his cool, but it's not going to be easy. The dude needs a wave, and there's never been a drought like this.
"...a big, wet kiss blown - with a sexy wink - in the general direction of the good, clean 1960's beach movies. Michael Barnes, Austin360.com
Editor's NoteMatthew McConaughey stars in this film as Steve Addington, an A-list surfer who comes home to find Malibu has changed. Gone are the times when surfers lived just to catch a wave; now it's all about sponsorships, virtual reality, and money, but all Steve wants to do is surf. But when the West Coast waves turn flat, Steve's options are gone with the tide. SURFER, DUDE also stars Woody Harrelson, Scott Glenn, Willie Nelson, and Alexie Gilmore.
