This inspirational documentary is essential viewing for young and old. Javier Pena (conductor) is a true gift as he leads a band of handicapped musicians to greatness. Goodwill workers by day become gifted artists by night as they shine their own unique lights. Winner of many festival awards, For Once is My Life is an amazing documentary you don't want to miss.

This is the best movie. It touches your heart. It will make you cry and smile at the same time. I work with people with disabilities and we all watched the movie and cheered and laughed. It will encourage everyone to reach for the stars AND to embrace the magic of music.

This movie has a lesson for us all. The value of life itself, the incredible talents, gifts, abilities we are ALL given if we only believe and allow God to unharness by our faith alone. And the dedication, gift and sacrifice of the director --- what a blessing of a man! I want to buy several copies of this to give as gits. Fabulous, a breath of fresh air, heartwarming above and beyond. Bravo!

Every member of the good will band has challenges and obstacles, but they overcome them and work together to play amazing music directed by Javier Peña.
Javier is so patient with each one, yet he is persistent and pushes them to do what seems to be impossible. We also get a glimpse of the families of the people with disabilities, their courage and determination to support and cheer for their family members to accomplish great things. This movie is an inspiration to all.

Its sad that this film is unavailable. I used it in my ethics class as a picker upper. Inspirational for sure. Shows talent exists in those we often consider throaways in our society.
