About the Movie
YOU and ME follows the extraordinary true story of Barney Miller, an active, life loving guy who became a quadriplegic 17 years ago as an emerging Pro Surfer when the car he was a passenger in, hit a tree at over 120kms an hour. Told by doctors he would never breathe independently or be able to use his right arm or legs again, Barney has defied all medical assessments through grit, self-belief, hard work and sheer guts. When Barney meets and falls in love with Kate, a girl with her own dreams of being a singer, he makes it his mission to only ask Kate to marry him when he can kneel down to propose, stand at the altar and dance at their wedding together. With the help and support of loved ones, the innovative work of Neurophysics Functional Performance trainer Ken Ware and close friends including 3X World Champion surfer Mick Fanning, Barney is back surfing, fundraising for others with spinal injury through the Barney Miller Surf Classic, and the Wings for Life World Run and is working towards his ultimate goal – to walk, run and surf standing up again.
Absolutely inspirational. A must see.
These filmmakers are going to go a long way!
More docudrama than documentary
This wasn't a great documentary mainly because there were actors portraying real people and their were dramatizations of real events. Barney Miller was tragically injured in Australia, where he's from. His and His fiancé's life stories are compelling. However it feels like a TLC episode with the reenactments, not like a documentary.
