Finding the love and security that they so longingly desire is a powerful motivator in many teenagers’ coming-of-age journey. That’s certainly the case for actor Rasmus King’s character of Rockit in the upcoming drama, ‘Ocean Boy.’
Gravitas Ventures has released the new official trailer for the film. The release of the movie’s trailer is supporting the feature’s distribution in select theaters and On Demand on February 3.
‘Ocean Boy’ was directed and produced by Tyler Atkins. The filmmaker also co-wrote the script for the feature, which is inspired by true events, with Drue Metz. Besides King, the drama stars Luke Hemsworth, Isabel Lucas and Leanna Walsman.
Set in the late 1980s, ‘Ocean Boy’ is told through the eyes of Rockit, a 13-year-old boy. As he grapples to understand why his Mum’s not coming home, Rockit embarks on a magical holiday with his father, Bosch. The teen eventually discovers that instead of taking a vacation, they’re actually running from the law.
Meanwhile, Rockit finds a soulmate and then teenage love with Ash Ash (Savannah La Rain), but it’s the ocean that gives him the security and calm he yearns from his parents. Ultimately Rockit is a boy held by nature, who also wins people’s hearts and respect as his story unfolds.
