I was prepared not to like this guy but he won me over pretty quickly. He channeled a rough start in life into a record-breaking accomplishment. If you like sailing there's enough of that in the movie to hold your interest, and if you're after a human interest story there's that as well. I muted the volume on the couple of amateur rap songs done by his friends but to each his own. Overall, this movie is a great find!
As a sailor I really enjoyed the sorry of Matt's adventure around the Americas solo and non-stop. His story of overcoming personal problems is inspiring on its own and provided a neat parallel of Matt overcoming nature and his own nature.
Matt is nuts for taking on a trip like that. It is interesting to learn how he was able to overcome many of the unexpected challenges that could have otherwise ended this adventure. Great story, photography and captivating.
