Press and Reviews


"The documentary is instead most tactful when it focuses on Giffords and Kelly, and their shared spirit that can inspire us all."


Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com


 


"It takes a first-rate intelligence to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time, as F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote. In a film that suggests what might have been and what is, Giffords proves first-rate."


Lisa Kennedy VARIETY


 


Harrowing, sad and inspiring in equal measures... Dan Fienberg Hollywood Reporter


 


"A truly inspirational offering an almost verite kind of fly-on-the-wall account of what can only be termed as a comeback story like no other."


Pete Hammond Deadline Hollywood Daily
