An inspirational film that just might change your attitude
31 October 2014 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

Go Far: The Christopher Rush Story is a beautiful film. It is both the documentary of an extraordinary person, and a reminder to all of us that everyone has a story. Getting to know the person behind the story may be more challenging when a disability is present, but the effort can be life-changing. Christopher touched people's lives as they quickly learned to look past his disability and see the compassionate, funny, intelligent person he was. He developed a system of principles to help him achieve his goals, which is explained in the film.

What I took away from the film are these reminders: Everyone has a story, and all of those stories are worth discovering; don't let anyone's disability distract you from learning to know the person; most of us are far more blessed than we care to admit or be thankful for every day; and the GO FAR principles can be implemented by any of us, no matter what obstacles we face.

While watching Burn Notice, I quickly learned that my favorite episodes had been edited by Zack Arnold. In GO FAR: The Christopher Rush Story, Zack delivers a wonderful movie about an inspirational young man, the parents and family who helped him believe in himself, friends whose lives were changed by their relationship with Christopher, and the method he used to accomplish amazing goals. I recommend this inspirational film to everyone of any age.
