Heartwarming and Inspiring Docu-drama
19 November 2017 | by peterapooleSee all my reviews

Mully is a straightforward and positive retelling of the life of Kenyan Charles Mulli, who rose from being an abandoned street orphan to wealth and prosperity. He then shocks his well-to-do family, when he sells all, and throws his family into a life dedicated to helping abandoned Kenyan children. The trials and success of that effort are more astounding than his previous rise to wealth.

This is a heartwarming and inspirational story put together from brief re-enactments along with family movies, footage documenting the development of the Mully Children's Family institution, and interviews. The mix of approaches works well in building and telling the story without undue drama. The story is greatly bolstered by the attractive and charismatic screen presence of Charles Mulli himself. He comes across as inspiring, but moreover as inspired. Beyond the great care he shows for the children, the manner in which his non-profit foundation develops and thrives is truly visionary.

The story moves forward in a fairly earnest manner - efficient in its hour and 21 minutes. A scripted and acted version of the story would almost certainly dwell more deeply into the drama of Mulli's personal life.

I think this telling is not overtly religious. While Mulli receives his own personal inspiration while listening to a preacher, he leaves trusting the inspiration, if not the preacher himself. While Mulli frequently mentions God, and there are couple of mildly miraculous scenes, There is no direct religious message. While strongly religious viewers may indeed find "proof" within this movie, the movie seems to me somewhat restrained in that regard and not too in-your-face for those not so inclined. I say that mainly to convey that this inspiring, positive movie is well worth your time, regardless of your orientation.
