Charlie St. Cloud.

I love the trailer for the movie.

It has two amazing songs: Snow Patrol's 'Run' and BOB's 'Airplanes' feat. Hayley Williams.

The plot in a nutshell centers around Charlie St. Cloud. He is an intelligent kid, Stanford-bound, and talented with sailing and baseball. He promises to teach his brother some baseball before he leaves to college, but gets in an accident where his brother is killed. Left with the memories of this promise, Charlie finds it difficult to move on. Charlie has delusions of his spirit, and is able to carry out his promise to teach him baseball despite his brother's physical presence being gone. Charlie meets a girl, who happens to sail, and starts falling for her. An internal struggle occurs when Charlie's brother accuses Charlie of picking the girl over him.

Charlie must choose to either move forward with his life or not. In the form of his deceased brother, he finds it hard to move on, and look past the guilt he feels. I think the plot is great - and it's based on the book with the same name, which I actually want to pick up and read.

Also, Zac Efron is in it, and I really believe he has a lot of emotional range, and I'm excited to see him have a go at it. He's not bad to look at either. :)

I can't wait til October 16th!
