Ill-conceived, poorly written, badly acted, and incompetently directed, this is a disaster from start to finish...

Audience Reviews for When I Find the Ocean

This is a pretty good film, the time frame is 1965 in Alabama. About a young girl who runs away from home to see the ocean. Being abused by her Mother's future husband, a non understanding Mom, and a loving grandfather are just some of the problems this young girl faces, so she leaves and leaves by boat going down river, she runs into Trappers, a Panther, and a Tug Boat Captain that saves her life. Lots of B acting and direct reading from cue cards over simple lines, but still a good movie. Could have left the racism out of the movie and the movie would have still been as enjoyable. But Still have to give the story line 3 1/2 stars
