The amazing true story of a man who overcame his less than ideal circumstances to become someone of great benefit to his society. Never underestimate the power of a good mother in shaping her child's future.

Outstanding movie. Watch the extras before you watch the movie. You will meet the real Dr. Ben Carson.
The actors were terrific.

Mothers can make a powerful difference when they point their children against the popular tide of conformity...and children in making courageous choices to follow, can realize amazing results. Interesting how this story made me think of Seahawk Richard Sherman and his rise to success with the help of his own smart and tough mama ~ Debby

Cuba Gooding was exceptional in this movie and it lets everyone know that you should never count a person out regardless of their skin color. You never know how far a person will go and what they will accomplish in life; history has proved it again and again.

A movie for all ages, but should be watched especially by the young, who will find inspiration in Dr. Carson's life. A must see!
