'For Once in My Life'

I really want to see this: The documentary "For Once in My Life," tells the story of the Spirit of Goodwill," a musical group made up of Goodwill Industries employees, most of whom are mentally challenged. It airs on PBS Tuesday. The trailer is wonderful.

Watch the full episode. See more Independent Lens.

It is a really great movie! I saw it because my husband's cousin was the editor -- and am looking forward to seeing it again. A great story of what people are able to do when given the opportunity!!

Hi Gael,
Love your website! We have a documentary feature ourselves that has just been released on DVD about the secret origin of Jelly Bellies and the rise and fall of their creator...A strange but true story.
The film is available for a review if you have time- it would be an honor.
