    The Making of a Great Surgeon
    I enjoyed the film, SIGHT. It was powerful, moving and even funny, at times. Loved all the actors.

    As someone who has had 3 (!) eye surgeries, I found the subject matter to be especially interesting.

    The journey Ming takes in his desire to become a doctor is harrowing. I didn't know some of the history of China before seeing this film. I don't want to give too much away so I'll just say his journey was fraught with danger.

    He didn't have an easy time even after he became a respected doctor. Plagued by nightmares, guilt and uncertainty he found inspiration where he could in order to not be paralyzed by fear.

    As for his missing childhood friend, I kept thinking, "She's probably on Facebook. Has anybody checked Facebook?" 😉

    If you have the opportunity, I hope you see this film. You can thank me later.

    Absolutely amazing true story 👏👏👏👏
    I took my family to see this movie and I was inspired big time. What a awesome message of sight physically but also spiritually and also reminder of how many stories that needs to be told of true life events that are really impactful. I had no idea and I learned a lot and I'm very encouraged by this movie. I recommend anyone to see this movie. They will not leave out of the movie the same a must watch! There were so many things that I learned about China that I had no idea and also the struggle that people go through all over the world and how God can meet so many people at the same time. This is an awesome movie. My family and I. We all were very emotional with this movie because it was so much revealed and so much it covered. I'm grateful to have watched this movie!

    Great movie, amazing true story
    This movie will challenge you to think about how you approach life. Are you living with purpose? Are you making the world a better place? This incredibly true story is about a gifted child who faced many hardships. We are not all created equal, but we can do our part to make the world a better place. This story focuses on a young Indian girl who is horribly abused by a step-parent. Despite this very sad start, the movie is uplifting and funny. Definitely a movie to see with young adults, but not appropriate for small children. This is a new type of movie, that is uplifting and real! Check it out!
