This movie is based on a true story. Patch Adams actually existed. I am not going to write much about this movie. It's really specific and if I say too much, I might ruin it for you. 

This film is something beautiful. I think that, no matter what kind of genre someone prefers, this movie is destined to touch really deep into our souls. 

Patch Adams was a guy who had a wonderful vision: he wanted to open a medical facility that would provide treatment to people for free. He actually managed to pull it off, until he was busted. He went to court, his college wanted to throw him out. I won't tell you what happened, go and watch the movie.

The story is wonderful. Everything is there: comedy, tragedy, reflection, many emotions put together in one box. No, the crew did not exaggerate. Every single feeling is packed neatly and properly into the plot. The movie is not fast, but it also is not slow. A perfect balance exists among all elements.

Robin Williams did a terrific job in this movie. He was witty, as always. He also showed the world that he can play sad roles, besides funny ones. He managed to produce a vision of a person who really believed that people should be treated through doctor-patient attachment (on a friendly level) and that doctors should not treat their patients as things. 

Watch this movie. You will miss out something great and humane if you don't.
