A movie that underlines persistence, dedication, love and hard work
18 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had the honor to see this movie last week. It's an absolutely must see movie. I personally love movies based on positive true life events. We need more family movies that could inspire our youth to be persistent in order to achieve their goals. Our kids need to understand that everything requires dedication and hard work. I saw myself in this movie as a teenager and now as a teacher. I work in a small rural farming community and see youth hopeless because of the difficult situations they are in. They need motivation and I strongly feel this movie will serve that purpose very well. Thank you Disney and I hope you continue to provide us with more movies like this one. Rosie
