Movie Reviews

A Must-Have
S. Brown | Australia | 07/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For everyone who loved 'Tuesdays with Morrie', this is a must-have addition to the library. It gives even further insight into the extraordinary story and life lessons taught by Morrie Schwartz and in a gloomy and hazy world, provides a true example of spirit and courage."
Lessons for Thriving not Just Living
Peggy L. Hanson | Chicago, IL | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In these interviews Morrie Schwartz shares with his audience what it means to live with meaning. All too often all of us get caught up in the day to day grind and do not take time to be aware of the things that are important until it is too late as they say. We can learn from Morrie what we can do to live now, each and every day with purpose, kindness, and certitude that we have a purpose. Morrie Schwartz left his mark via these interviews. In addition, I believe Ted Koppel did some of his most important journalist work when interviewing Morrie Schwartz.

I have used this material with college students, and they have walked away from class different people as a result of their encounter with the now posthumous Morrie Schwartz. He has truly been given the gift of eternal life!"
Tender, Real & Inspiring
Carla Maningas | Surprise, AZ | 12/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My husband and I enjoyed this DVD so much as we dealt with his own terminal illness. It helped us talk about tough things and gave us hope that the last part of his life needn't be spent in fear or desperation. Absolutely tender, honest and very inspiring."
Something even a teenager can appreciate
Lindsay Kendall | 05/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was pleased to see this DVD on amazon's website. I am a high school English teacher and this DVD supplements my Tuesdays with Morrie unit perfectly. We just watched it as a class the other day and the students loved being able to connect with Morrie as a real human being not just a character in the book. Morrie's warmth transcends through the screen and he really is the person everyone wants to be friends with. The interviews show Morrie's deteriorating condition and just what this disease does. Also the extras are excelllent with great features like an interview between Ted and Mitch Albom."
