Greetings from the Shore
Release Date: September 12th, 2008
Still reeling from the death of her father, a young girl spends one last summer at the Jersey Shore before heading off to college. But when her plans fall apart, the girl stumbles into a mysterious world of Russian sailors, high-stakes gambling, and unexpected love. Drawn from the coming-of-age experiences of writer Gabrielle Berberich, Greetings From The Shore is part memoir, part fairytale. The film was shot on an island off the coast of New Jersey, Barnegat Island, in the same seaside town where the real events occurred to Berberich. Like the setting, each character is an island. They are loners, dreamers brought together by fate for one chance summer. An ensemble cast brings these vivid characters to life, including Paul Sorvino, David Fumero, Jay O. Sanders, Lars Arentz-Hansen, and Kim Shaw in a debut performance. The film is an homage to coming-of-age classics like Dirty Dancing and Mystic Pizza, while in its own right, Greetings From The Shore is a unique and personal story. It’s a love letter in the sand, a tribute to the Jersey Shore, and a postcard from summers past.
