I read another review that complained of the story not being solely based on facts but I think that is just someone who did not give permission for his identity to be included in the movie and is now angry a movie was made anyway. It was his own fault he did not get credit. The basic story appears true and 90% of all based on true stories have details that are not exactly true to case.
This is a great movie about having hope and a miracle. I also saw the Beyond the Headlines story. Tiffany Rubin appears to be the ultimate loving mother. Kobe is lucky to have a mom like her.
