A life true story about a true and alive man.
2 September 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A movie about life, about the decisions you have to make from childhood to became something in your life. I recommend this movie to all, one of the best movies ever. It's not boring at all and Cuba Gooding Jr. make the character so real even if he doesn't look like an neurosurgeon or even a doctor. His mother and her education made a explosive turning in Ben life and like he said " I pray everyday " helped to reach his goal to became an doctor and not any doctor an devoted and respected neurosurgeon.

Dr. Ben Carson was and is one of the best neurosurgeons alive.

Because he is black teach us that God see no color when he think about us and with His help we can achieve everything we want in life.
