Product Description

A family holiday in Sicily turns into a nightmare when seven-year-old Nicholas is shot. The parents (Jamie Lee Curtis and Alan Bates), keeping vigil at their dying son's bedside, are asked to make an almost impossible decision: to sanction the use of Nicholas' organs so that other children may be given the chance to live. Based on a true story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming And Inspiring Movie 11 July 2013
By Rebecca Rhoades - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nicholas' Gift is a must-have for any family movie collection! It is a powerful story of sacrifice, forgiveness, and faith at a time when most people would not be thinking about those things. When the family vacation to Italy takes a really bad turn, the family's simple decision and choices lead to a positive outcome for all. This movie also tells the story of both organ donation and organ transplantation from the sides of both the donor family and the recipient, unique to stories of organ transplants (which are almost always one sided - from the donor's family's side or from the recipient's side). Definitely a movie worth watching!
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite movies 26 Nov 2012

I read the book and wanted to watch the movie. The movie is a beautiful portrayal of the events leading up to the decision to donate Nicholas' organs, and the effect it had on the citizens of Italy.

I don't want to give away what the movie is about but is one of Jamie lee Curtis' best. There is a shooting in the car while visiting Italy, she's unaware her son is a victim of this shooting till they stop. It is a sad but touching true story.
