On November 15, 2013, the world came together to grant one 5-year-old leukemia patient his wish to be Batman for a day. "Batkid Begins" looks at why and how this phenomenon took place, becoming one of the biggest "good news" stories of all time.
Miles Scott (Batkid) was diagnosed with Leukaemia at 18 months old. He, and his family, went through chemo therapy for 2 years. As of July 2015, Miles is cancer free and enjoys a positive prognosis. See more »
This was an amazing film. Batkid is the superhero name of an American child who is also a cancer survivor. His wish was to be "Batkid", a sidekick of the comic book superhero Batman and the people at the Make A Wish Foundation turned San Francisco into Gotham City for a day. The city was completely transformed and everyone from the newspaper to President Obama got involved.
We watched it as a family and found it to be a springboard for a number of topics like; Life and death, the inherent goodness of most people and how each of us can make a difference in the world. It was also beautifully filmed and tightly edited. I can't say enough about this movie.
