Waiting for Lightning is one of the most inspiring biographical documentaries I have ever seen . This movie grabs you and takes you on a journey through Danny Way's life. It shows how his relentless shredding on the skateboard changed the sport of skateboarding forever. This movie portrays how the goals and dreams of one man can have an affect on so many people's lives. It proves that even the hardest goals can be achieved if we use our willpower and determination to push through obstacles in our way. Danny Way reminds us how important it is to get back up when we fall and have faith in our abilities. I believe this film will relate to anyone who watches it, even people like myself who have never skateboarded before.
