In Flight Movie-The Ultimate Gift

Watched a beautiful movie on the plane flight from San Francisco, CA to Newark, NJ last night starring Abigail Breslin from one of my favorite movies "Little Miss Sunshine", Brian Dennehy, James Garner, Bill Cobbs, & Drew Fuller.  It was called "The Ultimate Gift".  Just looked it up online and looks like the author Jim Stovall has a pretty amazing story of his own.

Jim Stovall is a blind man who sees what really matters. After years of reaching out to diverse audiences with his own remarkable history, he turned deep inside. Right to the heart of the values – or ‘gifts’ – that rest within us all, and the magical transformations that begin once we start to recognize and share these 12 treasures. The universal yet profound insights of his book became the keys that continue to unlock incredible new hope, joy and meaning for individuals, families, schools and public-service organizations throughout the world. 

Jim Stovall has overcome blindness to become a national champion Olympic weightlifter, a successful investment broker, entrepreneur, author and motivational speaker. He is co-founder and president of the Narrative Television Network, which makes movies and television accessible for our nation’s 13 million blind and visually impaired people and their families.

This movie was based on a book that Jim wrote.
A best-selling story that just keeps giving... now as an award-winning film!

When his wealthy grandfather dies, trust fund baby Jason Stevens anticipates a big inheritance. Instead, his grandfather has devised a crash course on life with twelve tasks – or “gifts” – designed to challenge Jason in improbable ways, sending him on a journey of self-discovery and forcing him to determine what is really most important in life.
