    A touching and almost ridiculously inspirational story for all of us.
  2. 75
    Ten percent of Ghana's 20 million people are disabled, yet the film makes little attempt to explain why.
  3. An inspirational movie about a inspiring figure: Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah of Ghana.

    Directed in the breathless inspirational tones of an infomercial, the film's an acceptable document of a thoroughly remarkable individual.
  5. 60
    The heroic struggle of its subject is clearly meant to inspire, but it also seems destined to shame weak-willed viewers who'd crumble under much less formidable obstacles.
  6. 60
    This feel-good profile barely touches on the political and cultural ramifications of Emmanuel's work. Narration by Oprah increases the aura of a civics lesson.

    Sadly, Emmanuel's Gift is a powerful story of political change almost smothered by contrivance.
