Storyline

It all started with three little words. I'll Push You is an up-close and personal look into the dynamics of a life-long friendship between of two best friends - Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray - as they travel across El Camino de Santiago. This feature-length documentary covers the struggle of the 34-day, 500-mile hike across mountains, deserts, hills, and valleys and features perspectives from family and friends. Even though the story begins with the challenges that come with Patrick's answering of the invitation to push Justin in a wheelchair across northern Spain, it also explores the struggles related to Justin's rare neurological disease. The parallel paths of Patrick's experience in Spain and Justin's life journey come together in a singular moment to reveal to Patrick something unezpected. The story's beautiful cinematography is set to poignant music tracks that underscore, perfectly, the inspiring example of generosity and vulnerability on display. The film is an intimate ...

Very moving
3 November 2017 | by jvande7471-249-355231See all my reviews

The bond between these men is something that the rest of the world can only aspire to. This movie not only tells of an incredible, dedicated friendship, but is also very well produced. The cinematography was great. Video and audio were very well balanced. The story was told in a very naturally flowing way. I'm really glad I saw this.
