Is It Any Good?
This well-written and well-researched production by director Richard Trank, narrated by Oscar winner George Clooney (Syriana), is historic cinema at its finest. Although the film covers a lot, Never Stop Dreaming: The Life and Legacy of Shimon Peres is worth the watch of each and every frame of revealing firsthand interviews and archival footage and photos.
In one interview, Peres declares that he was "an exceptionally large baby. I was a sensation, if you want." U.S. President Bill Clinton shares comments on Peres' later years stating that "people were always amazed that no matter how old he got, first, he looked good, and he stayed young in mind. Made him young at heart. That's how he kept going." And with the future always present for Peres, he stayed on-message by telling "young people, that each of you, every girl and every boy, are richer, and deeper, and better than you think. Look in yourself. Keep your curiosity." Truly inspirational thoughts for kids and teens to consider in their own lives from a world-class dreamer!
