Batkid is my Hero
It seems like there is never an end to the amount of depressing stories in the news today. Death, starvation, crime, race riots, global catastrophe, it's hard to find a positive story out there. I remember a story in November a few years ago that warmed my heart and rekindled my spark of belief in the good of humanity. The film Batkid Begins documents the true heart lifting story of Miles Scott, a 5 year old diagnosed with terminal Leukemia and his dream to become Batman. Through the tireless effort of the Make-a-Wish that dream took wings and grew into something no one ever expected. Through viral internet traffic and countless, tireless volunteers, the city of San Francisco played Gotham for one day to full fill a little boys wish. I loved this documentary. It does an excellent job giving a closer look at one of the most positive news stories in 10 years. It never really pushes that emotion button artificially to generate anything that this story doesn't possess on its own. It simply shows things as they unfolded. It also shows us uniquely what it was that caused this project to take flight as high as it did. We all want to be a kid again with dreams of Superheroes. Somewhere along the way we all seem to lose touch with that. Miles helps us remember what it means to want the impossible. At an 87 minute running time there is no reason you can't find a few minutes out of your time to be uplifted. Well worth it. My only complaint is that this movie needed to be marketed better. More people need to know about this movie and its positive message. If you enjoyed this review, please check out my blog at yourturntopick.com
