Touching TRUE STORY , pleasant enough but suited more as a TV doco rather than full length film. Dan Carson is a humble man coming from a disadvantaged African American background toend up one of the BEST neurosurgeon's in the world. His Mother's influence on his life was amazing as she realised the power of education. I always enjoyed seeing the actual person in the extras. Not as good as Temple Grandin's true story but a fair night's entertainment.
this movie did not have sub titles available yet I ordered it from the hearing impaired list?
A movie that was done well. Great story. Thankfully we have such wonderful doctors and other medical professionals everywhere and it was nice to focus on some other heroes other than sporting "heroes". The direction and acting was first class. We could do with a lot of mothers around like the mother in this story. Well worth a watch.
I have read this book and already knew the story of Ben Carson (who doesn't). I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and Cuba Gooding's portrayal of this real life hero.
Brilliant true movie! What a man! what a mother behind the man!
I loved this movie. It was simple yet moving and interesting. Funny, I don't recall requesting this one, but must of because my partner is a fan of real life stories. This is one I am really glad I picked and forgot about as it was a great surprise!
This type of movie is rare indeed and all the more highly appreciated! Not only is it well acted but it provides much needed inspiration in our day and age. It speaks of the power of faith and because it is true to life, it has reality to back it up! Please, movie makers, give us more of this genre and less of the deluge of crime flooding our screens and homes!
Excellent movie. It proves people can rise above what life has dealt them.
This is a sober realistic and fairly accurate story of a top afro-American neurosurgeon complete with finer insights into his life and personality . As satisfying as reading a good book.
Very entertaining, just shows how much a mother's love and determination can alter the life path of her children's future.
I thoroughtly enjoyed this movie.
This was a very good movie I really enjoyed it
One of the most uplifting and inspirational docos that I have ever had the privilege of viewing.
A great story, not particularly well told. The book was better by far.
Wonderful, sensitive story about a guy who against all odds becomes a brilliant neuro-surgeon. Keep tissues handy. Recommend watching it.

ok but found it a bit preachy.
Outstanding true story of a coloured boy in a white mans' world
The movie could have been more involved - the story one could imagine being more exciting than that - movie should delved into more emotion - I felt that they just skimmed along the top
Inspiriational movie about what you can do if you try hard enough
I very good movie, the story is so engrossing the you wished the movie went for ever, very well acted by all. It's not too tear jerky, just the right amount of emotion what's going on in the scene. Good movie.
