“I had a pleasant time viewing For Love u0026amp; Life: No Ordinary Campaign. The mood, editing, and celebrity cameos make this an excellent watch overall.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis documentary follows Brian Wallach u0026amp; Sandra Abrevaya, a couple from Chicago, who meet and fall in love while working during Obamau0026#39;s 2008 campaign. Shortly after starting their family; news of Brianu0026#39;s ALS diagnosis turned this familyu0026#39;s world upside down. However, Brian and Sandra were not going to let ALS stand in their way. This film follows the mass ALS movement sparked by Brian and Sandra, and how this coupleu0026#39;s journey gave a voice to the millions of people suffering with the disease and how they also brought attention to the USu0026#39;s broken healthcare system.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI love the uplifting mood this documentary takes – the music and editing perfectly captivate the success and struggles that both Brain and Sandra faced while fighting for ALS. One scene that really stuck with me is when Brian and Sandra were preparing a speech that they were going to give to the government urging them to make the drugs that could help the symptoms associated with ALS accessible for all. The music by Emily Rice really adds in creating a suspenseful, yet captivating moment. As for the editing, supervising editor Miranda Yousef makes us feel immersed in this film with its very smooth transitions, transitions between interviews, personal video recordings, and animated info graphics. Lastly, I was very pleased to see celebrities such as Barack Obama, Mark Zuckerberg, Priscilla Chan, and countless others share their positive encounters with Brain and Sandra and the different ways in which they all support their campaign.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe filmu0026#39;s message is that when you encounter a problem, no matter how hopeless you may feel, there is always a solution that can often end up helping others along the way. This message is explored throughout the film and, even when discussing their trials and tribulations, this messaging remains true. The only thing to note is that there are some cuss words that are used.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI give For Love u0026amp; Life: No Ordinary Campaign 4 out of 5 starts and recommend it for ages 12 to 18, plus adults. The film releases on Prime Video on May 28, 2024. If youu0026#39;re looking for a new documentary to watch I definitely recommend you check this one out! By Tia O., KIDS FIRST!”
