As a nurse I have had the opportunity to work with many people with various disabilities. I know of kids who are bullied who are deaf or hard of hearing. Spirit of Love does a nice job in making you feel like their is hope for our society. Hope that we will learn to accept those who are different from ourselves. Spirit of Love is full of life lessons. All lessons that all ages can learn from. The teen cast is really quite remarkable. The coach who plays himself does a fine job and is very believable.My family really enjoyed this film. I'm sure because it had some great kids who were funny and real. The filmmaker captures a purity and sweetness that reminds me of films from my childhood. While the kids are quirky while dealing with their own individual angst you find yourself cheering for all of them. Spirit of Love is definitely a feel good family movie. Even during the basketball games I found myself cheering, and I don't really like sports. I was reluctant to watch another sports film but that's what my kids like. I'm glad we did. Also know that this film has captions and sign language. I was glad we watched it with the captions on. It was not distracting. I found it educational for my family. It created a lot of discussion. This film is worth a watch with your family and any teens you know who need to know they can accomplish things even when people tell you that you cant. Very encouraging and inspiring. Might be a great movie to show young athletes and sports teams. Its about winning in so many ways. You don't have to like basketball to like this film. A new kind of The Blind Side only basketball and great teen kids and an NBA player. We Loved this movie.
