    great idea about this topic. many thanks.

    I didn't see to many, but "Inside i'm dancing" [imdb] is a good one. It's not about sci, but it's about being a wheelchair user as a hi-quad.

      A Norwegian movie about group therapy for disable people so they should think positive. The movie is called "Kunsten å tenke negativt"( the art of thinking negative). Two people with SCI, one para and one quad, one after a stroke and one with psycic problems. It is real funny, it is sad you don't understand what they say

        Favorite and sci don't necessarily go together for me but these are all pretty good movies..

        1. Million Dollar Baby (Hillary's second Oscar)
        2. The Men (made in 1950, Marlon Brando, amazingly relevant imo)
        3. The Diving Bell and The Butterfly. (Not necessarily sci but essentially the same physical challenges as a high quad)
        4. Rear Window (CR remake)
        5. Bone Collector (Denzel and Angelina)
        6. Passion Fish
        7. Murder Ball
        8. Coming Home
        9. The Sea Inside
        10. Monkey Shines
        11. Gattaca

        Onward and upward.

            As far as TV shows go I kinda like Brothers, it portrays a SCI guy as just a average crazy type of guy in which people dont really seem to focus at all on his disability. Shows like this can only help out pwd.

            As far as movies go, my fav was Coming home. It did a lot of good for the image of disabled people just functioning as regular people in society.

            The Waterdance was really good too, it was kinda freaky how much it reminded me of my rehab when I was SCI'd in 1981.

            challenges you're dealt but
            the challenges you seek...If
            you have no goals, no
            mountains to climb, your
            soul dies".~Liz Fordred

              Chris;
              Too funny your #10 Monkey Shines. Beware people this is a scary movie. I tried to describe the plot to my son and he asked me if I had been having a nightmare or too many glasses of Chablis. I had to look up the credits on the INTERNET to prove it was a real movie.

                    I just came across The Rear Window with Christopher Reeves today.Not a really good movies imo,but I just didn't realize he did anything after his injury.It was pretty sad seeing him talking about the cure & all though.

                          Great movies!

                          Frida is a must see sci movie about how she turned the pain & suffering of her sci into art. And her art is really cool!

                            When I was a teen, I liked the movie Who's Life is it Anyway w/ Richard Dryfus. I was AB at the time. It is a good flick about a sculptor who transects his cord at C4, and ends up fighing for the right to die. It was made in the 80's.

                            Waterdance was pretty accurate.

                            Born on the 4th of July was good, but it's rather sour & heavy.
