Can't wait to see this
30 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This looks like an extraordinary documentary that honors everyday heroes. You know, those underdogs who really can make a difference in their community. But they are mostly overlooked and will probably never get any trophy for their great efforts. To me that trailer looked very inspiring and promising. I could imagine that it will be very challenging, too (what am I contributing?). Sort of like Lions under Lambs. I can't wait to see this! Most movie makers nowadays focus on money making. They turn yet another comic into movies. I think we as an audience (the real cash cow of Hollywood!) can make a difference, too, by supporting courageous movie makers (well, in this case documentary maker) and watch their shows. In the end, it's us who decide what we are being served for dinner.
