Lords of Dogtown

The skateboarding community will love this film. Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, the film recreates the 70s and the beginning of skateboarding.

The movie stars: Emile Hirsch, Victor Rasuk, John Robinson, Michael Angarano, Heath Ledger, and Nikki Reed.

The story(according to MovieWeb): In Venice, California in the mid '70's, the sport of surfing brought together a group of teenagers from a rough neighborhood. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean Park pier, a graveyard of a former amusement park, the boys from "Dogtown" joined the Zephyr skate team (or Z-boys). Known for their aggressive style, awe-inspiring moves and hard street attitude, the Z-Boys spent mornings and afternoons skateboarding. Taking the death-defying moves of surfing and applying them to skateboarding, the Z-Boys became overnight sensations - local legends - and revolutionized the art of skateboarding, transforming youth culture forever.

Release date to be announced in 2005
