BATKID BEGINS (2015)
Heartwarming and entertaining documentary about the world famous Make-A-Wish event where young leukemia survivor Miles Scott was transformed into Batman for a day. Dana Nachman’s film is less about Miles cancer than it is about his Make-A-Wish to become Batman and the answer to that request by the city of San Francisco. The film chronicles how the event came together and the outpouring of support that turned a child’s wish into a major event on November 15, 2013. While sometimes it feels there is a little too much patting of one’s own back by some involved and even at 90 minutes it seems a bit stretched out, you can’t deny is was an amazing event for a wonderful cause and you can’t help but cheer Miles as he saves San Francisco turned Gotham.
