“Extraordinary” is a terrific movie about individuals that move through and past their pain to reach the limits of their abilities. This unique film features professor David Horton (Leland Klassen), an avid runner who pushes himself and his family to the breaking point. There are several contentious moments with his wife Nancy (Shari Rigby). One of the positive things about the movie is the scenery, as David runs from California, his starting point, to New York. David says he felt led by God to make the run but questions this during his cross-country venture as he has many obstacles to overcome. This inspiring film is based on a true story.
At times, the viewer may become upset with David, whose determination is also a cause of frustration for David’s wife and family. David encounters a Russian runner in the film, however, and he changes the man’s life. Kirk Cameron shows up in the movie as a radio DJ hosting a talk show. Ultimately, what David accomplishes is amazing. We are happy to award this movie our Dove Approved Seal for All Ages.
