Audience Reviews for California Dreaming


Entertaining coming-of-age movie set amongst the California surf culture. It's low budget, with the music mostly new songs composed by Fred Karlin. But, given it's production limitations, it does a very good job as a character study. And, the movie gives you a good sense of place and time.
