Description It's January 2015 in St. Charles, a suburb of St. Louis. Fourteen year old John Smith, of Guatemalan descent, was adopted by Caucasians Brian and Joyce Smith when John was an infant and they were on a mission in Latin America. John is at the stage of his life where he is acting out, placing barriers between himself and his parents. The only things John seems to care about are basketball having made the school team's first string - and even then he has a tendency to grandstand on the court to prove himself to Chad who he beat out for the position - hanging out with his friends, particularly his best friends Josh and Rieger, and girls, most of his thoughts toward Abby. While Brian tries to connect to John by being his buddy and talking about basketball, Joyce feels they still have to be his parents and not his friends. The church used to be Joyce's sanctuary, but even the physical building of the church and the spirituality she got from it she feels are slowly being taken away from her in she constantly butting heads with the new pastor, Jason Noble, who is trying to take the church in a progressive direction against Joyce's sensibilities. Things for the Smiths change when on Martin Luther King Day, John, Josh and Rieger, against warnings, are playing on frozen St. Louis Lake, they eventually falling through the ice into the water. While first responders are able to pull Josh and Rieger out without incident, John has fallen below the ice unconscious into the murky water below. Although firefighter Joe Marrow believes they are now dealing with a non-emergency recovery rather than an emergency rescue mission, fellow firefighter Tommy Shine is able to locate an unresponsive John. John having been in the water for fifteen minutes, CPR not having been administered until twenty minutes after the fall, and rushing him to the hospital with no pulse for forty five minutes, Dr. Kent Sutterer, the attending ER doctor who happens to be Abby's father, allows Joyce to say her goodbyes to John. It isn't until Joyce is by John's side praying for a miracle that John regains a pulse. Following, differing views emerge as to John's potential recovery and survival. Dr. Garrett, the specialist in drowning cases, can only provide his scientific opinion, which is probable death through the night, and if John does survive, he will have suffered massive and permanent neurological damage with his brain being deprived of oxygen for such a long period of time. Brian, while at the hospital, cannot get himself to see John as he can only take his faith so far before common sense as to what will happen kicks in. Joyce, who has had a need to control things around her most of her life, does so as much as she can in John's situation, while she truly does believe that a miracle can happen as she continues to look to God. Pastor Jason knows he has to bridge what gaps have emerged between him and Joyce for both their and John's sake. And Tommy, a non-religious man, knows that some higher power that day told him to stay in the water to look for John.

As an artist and a human being, I find the subject of the documentary "Ain't It Cool" (2013) extremely important and I found myself engaged in the narrative. The film has the virtue of creating a human story that is not a human story and is not told in a human way. As a film, it's excellent. The film is based on a novel by Alister McGrath, and it's the story of a man, Kevin, who is trying to make it in the music business. Kevin is a brilliant musician who has a good record deal, but he doesn't have the wherewithal to make it big. He is also a lonely, bitter, insecure man who believes that the only way to succeed is to become a star and a rock star. He is very frustrated with his failures and feels that he is never going to make it big in the music business. One day, he comes across a black man named L.A. Reid (played by Jonah Hill) who teaches him how to be a star. Kevin then learns that the best way to make it in the music business is to be a rock star. L.A. Reid then teaches Kevin how to be a star and he begins to work hard to become a star. The film is filled with amazing shots of Los Angeles, the music industry, and the lives of these musicians. It's a powerful, poignant, and fascinating film. The acting is outstanding, especially from Jonah Hill and Michael Pena. The director is able to pull the audience in to the narrative without going over the top. The narrative is not a linear narrative, but a series of interweaving scenes. There are many layers to the narrative, and it's impossible to summarize the entire film. However, I would recommend that everyone see the film. The film has an interesting and original way of telling the story, but it's not a linear narrative. It's not a documentary, but a film about the music industry and its role in shaping the lives of its performers. I think it's very important to be reminded of what music can do to a person. The film is a powerful film, and I think it's important to see it.
