Great Movie...
8 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We just finished watching Gifted Hands and can't believe this was a made-for-TV movie and not for theatrical release. It is one of the better biographical movies we have ever seen.

Inspiring storyline - beautifully acted. What a wonderful message for young people that they can do anything they set their mind and heart to.

This is better than many of the movies you will pay to see.

Just sent out and email to friends and family to make sure they don't miss it.

Watch with Kleenex handy. Kudo's TNT...
