At home with my daughters, I am eager to escape and dream of Hawaii. I have chosen five movies and series in Hawaii to fight the lockdown.
Five movies and series in Hawaii
to fight the lockdown
LILO & STITCH (Disney)
A friendship between an alien, Stitch and Lilo, an orphan who lives with her sister Nani. Out in 2002, this story takes place in Hawaï. There is surf, music -a tribute to Elvis Presley– and the Hawaiian spirituality . This nice cartoon has been directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders.
I have all the DVD of this cult series I used to watch when I was younger and I watch it again with great pleasure.
Tom Selleck and John Hillerman are one of my favorite duets. Did you know that Orson Wells did the voice dubbing of Robin Masters (the owner of the famous and dream house near the beach…) during the first four episodes..
And the disco music invigorates you !
FIFTY FIRST DATES
Watch out, romantic comedy! A seducer, Henry, played by Adam Sandler, tells in love with Lucy, played by Drew Barrymore. Alas, Lucy suffers from amnesia and every morning wakes up, having forgotten the day before…
Well now, it would be convenient ! This comedy both moving and funny has been directed by Peter Segal. The score is joyful – the Beach Boys– and you may watch it now.
ENDLESS SUMMER (1966)
I can’t get rid of this cult documentaire on surfing at his beginnings. The director, Bruce Brown, stayed with two surfers, Mike Hynson et Robert August, during their world trip, from Hawaï to Senegal, through Ghana, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti and California.
The true story of the surf champion Bethany Hamilton, who lost an arm, bitten by a shark in Hawaii. This movie directed by Sean McNamara sets Anna Sophia Robb in Bethany, Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt, the parents.
This very strong movie talks about surviving after her accident which doesn’t held us from succeeding in being a champion again…
A documentary has also been produced : Unstoppable
KEEP STRONG !
