Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì 

Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story—one of the better films for the late 2000’s decade—live action Cuba Gooding Jr. film (not the documentary short film of the same or similar name) tells a story that can be welcomed and well received by all audiences. The movie inspires with a remarkable script that plumbs the depths of what it takes to successfully change an inevitable outcome of one’s place in life. The casting is perfect for Ben Carson, his brother, and their mother as well as Ben’s wife, Candy.
