Movie Info

Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as real-life neurosurgeon Ben Carson in this made-for-TV biographical drama from TNT. Directed by Thomas Carter (Coach Carter), the film reveals Carson's inspiring life story as a poor, inner-city youth who overcame great odds to become one of the world's best surgeons, thanks to the love of his determined single mother (played by Kimberly Elise) and an unswerving Christian faith.

    What a wonderful, sweet, inspiring story! I've always felt that a good movie is even that much better when it's a true story! I really enjoyed this one. Cuba Gooding Jr. was so good!

    Dr. Carson is famous world-wide but especially so here in Baltimore. Although I have never met him personally, I did get to go to Hopkins for a week of specialized EEG training back in 1990. I actually saw a baby who had a hemispherectomy due to Rasmussen's disease. I thought the movie was pretty good,
