Great Narrative Power
31 January 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

I saw this film on HBO last year. It's basically documentary material, but the people portrayed give a powerful demonstration of how "truth is powerful stuff". I have to applaud Christopher Reeve's narration. He gives just the right tone that's accurate for the lives we're entering. The little boy with no arms was the coolest story!!

Not the best, but certainly Powerful!!
