Movie Info

This inspiring drama is based on the true story of Daniel Huffman, a gifted high school football star who looked like a shoo-in for a major athletic scholarship and seemed poised for a shot at a career in the NFL. However, when Huffman's grandmother -- who raised him as a child -- needs a kidney transplant in order to survive, Daniel unhesitatingly donates one of his own, even though this means an end to his career in football. The film stars Debbie Reynolds, Ed Marinaro, and Elden Henson.

Audience Reviews for A Gift of Love: The Daniel Huffman Story

Way to sentimental, it detracts from the story and it has such a made for television look to it. The acting is not very good, that too is overdone. It's not horrible, it means well, but it is so predictable.

Debbie acquits herself well here, the same can not be said for the rest of the cast who offer adequate performances but little else.
