SYNOPSIS

Heath Ledger stars in the radical true story behind three teenage surfers, who took skateboarding to the extreme and changed the world of sports forever

Director Catherine Hardwicke followed up her highly acclaimed debut Thirteen with this exhilarating drama about the origin of extreme sports culture, and the devastating effects it has on the lives of those who created it.

After a severe drought empties Southern California s swimming pools, Z-Boys Tony (Victor Rasuk), Stacy ( John Robinson) and Jay (Emile Hirsch) move in with their boards and develop an entirely new style of skateboarding, heavily influenced by their surfing background. After winning numerous competitions, skateboarding and the Z-Boys both become a worldwide phenomenon, but this newfound success shreds their friendship.

Also starring Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain, The Dark Knight) Lords of Dogtown is one of the finest sports films of its generation, and Eureka Entertainment are proud to present the film for the first time in the UK in a special Dual-Format edition.
