Did You Know Hollywood Made A Movie About Ben Carson? Watch The Highlights Here – The Blaze

Dr. Ben Carson has been hot with conservatives since his well-publicized speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, where he criticized President Obama’s policies while the president sat all of 5 feet away, not to mention his CPAC address this past weekend. But what you might not know is that before he became a hero on the right, Carson was already a minor celebrity, and even got a TV movie made about his life. The movie, titled “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story,” is titled after Carson’s own autobiography, and follows the life of Carson (played as an adult by Cuba Gooding, Jr.) from his difficult early life through his college years at Yale to his career as a world-renowned neurosurgeon. It originally aired on TNT in February of 2009.

Apparently, unlike many would-be inspirational flicks that get released on TV, “Gifted Hands” is actually good, at least according to most critics. The Hollywood Reporter wrote an especially glowing review, calling the film “Emmy-worthy” and in a stroke of retroactive irony, the Orlando Sentinel called the film “the perfect movie for a country challenged by its new president to do better.”

Curious if you want to watch the film? YouTube user “pianonator” already put together a highlight reel of several scenes. You can watch it below:
