Maybe you’re pissed off that “Lipstick Jungle” is headed for the TV graveyard of canceled shows. Or maybe you can no longer handle Izzie’s ridiculous relationship with her DEAD ex-fiance Denny on “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Or just possibly, you actually went to see “Four Christmases” in the theater because Vince Vaughn is SO funny and Reese Witherspoon is SO cute but as it turns out, the movie is SO mediocre.
Well, forget all that. Seriously. Because I just watched an incredible, uplifting movie, called “Darius Goes West.”
It’s a documentary (don’t be scared) about 15 year-old Darius Weems, who suffers from a fatal disease, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). His brother died from the same disease.
But the movie isn’t depressing. It’s completely inspiring. And funny. And beautiful.
Weems and eleven of his best friends set off across America with the ultimate goal of getting his wheelchair customized on MTV’s “Pimp My Ride.” The movie is about friendship and love and the difference we can all make.
$17 dollars of every sale of this movie is devoted to promising DMD research. Their goal is to sell a million DVD’s by July 2009. To learn more about “Darius Goes West” click here.
I’m also giving away a copy of the movie. So leave a comment and you are entered.
