When 13 year old Bethany Hamilton was attacked by a 15-foot tiger shark, the run-in cost her her left arm. But not only did she survive the attack, she was back on the competitive circuit just a year later. Unstoppable takes the viewer on an incredible journey as a resilient athlete rises to the top of her game against all odds and becomes one of the leading professional surfers in the world. This documentary film weaves together intimate observational footage of Hamilton and her family, archival footage of the surfer as a young woman and gorgeous ocean wave panoramas into a heroic tale of bravery, perseverance, athleticism and hope. (Aaron Lieber, 2019, PG, 98 min.)
