Gigi and Nate // Movie Review and $10 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

Go see Gigi & Nate in theaters starting September 2nd!  https://www.gigiandnate.com/

This encouraging and inspirational film is based on a true story!

Gigi & Nate is the story of Nate Gibson, a young man whose life is turned  upside down after he suffers a near-fatal illness and is left a quadriplegic. Moving  forward seems near impossible until he meets his unlikely service animal, Gigi - a 
curious and intelligent capuchin monkey. Although she is trained to assist Nate with  his basic needs, Gigi helps Nate find what he needs most of all: hope. 


A heartwarming and emotional film, about a young man who finds an unlikely friend in his unexpected service animal, a capuchin monkey named Gigi. 

Engagingly this inspiring movie tells the story of Nate Gibson a young man whose whole life is turned around when he is struck with meningitis that leaves him in a wheelchair and short on hope. A captivating film, with hope at its core.

An all-star cast tells this inspiring story, well-paced and full of heart. Gigi is a scene stealer, her monkey antics and expressions are so adorable and emotive. I loved seeing Nate bond with her and all of the tasks that she helped him with throughout the film. 

 An entertaining story of perseverance, hope and the power of a friend. I really enjoyed this film, everything was so well done and does a great job of showing such an inspiring and heartwarming friendship, with some twists along the way. Definitely worth seeing!

Content note: The movie is rated PG-13. I think that it would be okay for older teens at parent's discretion. The movie has some thematic elements and themes, a character attempts suicide, there are some scenes of teen partying and drinking, people become drunk, as well as strong language. Faith is briefly shown in prayer and symbolism, but this is not a faith focused film.

“As much as this is about a monkey and this kid, I think it’s about overcoming difficulties and things that you think are impossible that you’ll never come back from.”  -Charlie Rowe (Nate in GIGI & NATE)

  1. Loved the old LAssie series growing up~!

  2. I watch very few of them because I can't handle the animal getting hurt or worse, dying.

  3. Oh, all great choices! I'm a huge fan of horse movies so I loved War Horse, Flicka etc!

  4. Gigi and Nate sounds like a great movie for the family to watch!

    I think I would like the friendship between me and a monkey...I've always wanted one! Of course, I've always wanted a tiger, too!

    Thanks for sharing it with me and have a fantastic day!
