 I love a good inspirational story. 

It doesn't matter if it's within the pages of a book... or up on the big screen. There is just something that can be so encouraging about seeing someone overcome their own obstacles that can remind us that perhaps we can do the same as well. 

Do you know what I love even more though?

I love these types of stories that are actually based on real life events. Sure, any author or screenwriter can write a happy ending... but isn't even better to know that these good things can happen in real life too? 

Today I am excited to share with you a inspirational new movie of hope and overcoming obstacles, based on a true story: Gigi and Nate. 

Take a look:

Synopsis: Gigi & Nate is the story of Nate Gibson, a young man whose life is turned upside down after he suffers a near-fatal illness and is left a quadriplegic. Moving forward seems near impossible until he meets his unlikely service animal, Gigi - a curious and intelligent capuchin monkey. Although she is trained to assist Nate with his basic needs, Gigi helps Nate find what he needs most of all: hope.

I had the chance to check out the movie before it hits theaters...and oh, what a movie it was!

This is one you will definitely want to have the tissues handy for... if you are anything like me, you will certainly need them. The movie starts off lighthearted and fun, but throughout takes viewers through an absolute roller coaster of emotions--- the good and the bad! 

Charlie Rowe, who plays Nate in the movie said it so well: “I want the audience to feel moved, I want them to feel energized,” he says. “I want them to feel everything I felt when I read the script for the first time. It’s a rollercoaster on four wheels. It’s about family and the difficulties of losing something you love.”

And that is certainly how I felt watching it. It's a beautifully done movie and one that I thoroughly enjoyed!

While this is an inspirational movie, this is not a Christian film. As such, there are scenes with drinking as well as some language as well, though certainly not a ton. It carries a PG-13 rating. Still, I think it would likely still be appropriate for most older teens at least, and certainly one that adults can appreciate and enjoy as well.
