Today we get our first look at the romantic drama Charlie St. Cloud, which stars Zac Efron.  Based on the novel by Ben Sherwood, the film centers around a “young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way.”  Alongside Efron, the cast includes Amanda Crew, Donal Logue, Charlie Tahan, Kim Basinger, and Ray Liotta.  Burr Steers (17 Again) directs from a script by Craig Pearce (Moulin Rouge!) and Lewis Colick (Ladder 49).

The film doesn’t look like my cup of tea, but I hope for big things from Efron, and this seems to represent a step in the right direction away from teen stardom.  The beginning of his career his not all too dissimilar from that of Leonardo DiCaprio, if I may make a bold comparison.  Check out new images and a full plot synopsis after the break.

Here’s the official plot synopsis.  Charlie St. Cloud is slated to hit theaters July 30, 2010.

Based on an acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way.  In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love.

Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar® winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown.  But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.

After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love.  And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.
