On a side note... as a paraplegic, I get sick of able-bodied actors playing disabled roles. Thank you Chris!
The small retail store chains that service the area are decidely second-tier and sell used repacked DVDs from rental shops. There are NO DVD cases and NO descriptions of the films. I often take a chance for the few dollars Involved.
That's how I got this film. I simply popped it in to see what it was.
A thoughtful moral dillema where a person gains an unbidden and unique power to change others' lives profoundly...but not his own. And then there are the others who want to utilize that power for their own interests. The rest would be a spoiler.
Just a sweet, sweet film acted with real care.
And I was blown away with the DVD "added feature" that reveals the writer/actor was not playing the part of a guy forever to be in a wheelchair. He WAS a guy forever to be in a wheelchair.
There are certain themes in the film that resonate with Christians, but also resonate with other belief (and nonbelief) systems.
I love the line about sometimes things happen to you when G-d is trying to talk to you.
Foul-language note: This takes place largely on skid row and in hard-rock music environments. The F word is used a lot.
Would I watch again? - I don't think I would
It's a good thing Mark Ruffalo had Dr. Bruce Banner in his future. His directing talents leave much to be desired.
