  1. A deeply personal, often wrenching documentary.
  2. 80
    A marvelously compressed and immaculately constructed work.

    Pic can be taken as either inspirational or cautionary, but either way rivets attention on the efforts of both medical science and Conn herself to keep the little guy alive.
  4. 63
    Deeply personal film that often feels more like an artfully produced home video than a documentary.
  5. 60
    Guaranteed to polarize audiences. Is her insistence on taking every measure possible to save little Nicholas heroic or monumentally self-serving?

  7. 38
    Your baby is near death. Instead of dropping everything to save his life, you make sure the video camera keeps rolling.

Also, I think they should have spent more time with Nicholas instead of worrying about the camera. Expand
