‘Hoovey’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
Life told him to quit. God had a different plan.
HOOVEY is the inspiring and true story of a Midwestern basketball family that, with God’s help, stayed in the game and won. When promising high school basketball player Eric “Hoovey” Elliott collapses on the court, doctors discover a life-threatening brain tumor. Hoovey will survive the high-risk surgery, but at what cost? Can he relearn to walk, read, even to see clearly? The road is long, and meanwhile overwhelming medical bills threaten to undo everything his parents, Jeff and Ruth, have taken a lifetime to build.
With seemingly no one to turn to—but with tenacity and love born of faith—an entire family regains its footing. Hoovey learns to read again, to dribble and shoot a basketball and, finally, stepping out in faith, he’s back on court for another shot at his dream…
HOOVEY is inspired by the true story of an amazing family’s real-life rebound, based on the book, “Rebounding From Death’s Door”, written by Jeff Elliott.
Based on a true story, this is a powerful film you won’t want to miss. Here are some highlights:
- Believing makes it possible, faith makes it real.
- Some amazing parenting with fabulous advice.
- Humor intermixed.
- Loved the speech the coach gave – reminded me of Christianity.
- Everything came from God to begin with.
- It’s not what happens to you, it’s what you do with it.
- The boy’s attitude towards what happened to him.
