Dare To Dream
21 September 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What to say?! Inspiring. Amazing. Wonderful. All out rockin'! There aren't enough words to describe how incredible this film is. It takes determination, guts and, above all, love, to do something as incredible as "Mission to Lars" portrays. With so many families fracturing apart and people with disabilities marginalised, this incredible documentary shows the what so many people are lacking in their lives. You'll feel the love, you'll shed some tears and, by Jove, you'll feel the music! 10 stars isn't enough to rate this film. Heck, an entire galaxy of stars isn't enough. These guys have moved mountains and, hopefully, they'll inspire many more people to go out and live their dreams. If you see only one documentary this year, let it be this one. You won't regret it!
