Gigi & Nate
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 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.

Be aware that the movie does contain some language and a party scene. It’s nothing extreme, but I would not watch this with younger kids. The rating is PG-13 for that reason.
Nate is getting ready to go off to college. It should be the most exciting time for him, and his future should be wide open. Unfortunately, he suffers an accident and becomes paraplegic, which means he is paralyzed from the neck down.
His Mom puts everything on hold and devotes all of her time to caring for him. As expected, this is a massive change for both of them. Despite his mom doing everything she can, Nate is very depressed, and nothing seems to be working.
Because Nate is so depressed, his mom requests a service animal for him. They give him an adorable little monkey named Gigi. Not many people would think of a monkey when they hear the words “service animal,” but she does a fantastic job.
Slowly, Nate starts to see some improvements, but challenges threaten those improvements. It’s so hard for Nate not to give up, but he holds on and becomes stronger for it. I found myself rooting for him during the movie. There are so many emotions in this film, from laughing to crying.
Gigi & Nate is based on a true story. This movie particularly touched me. My cousin had an accident diving off a bridge where he was left paraplegic (from the waist down). I remember how difficult that time was for him. And I can’t imagine how hard it would have been if he was quadriplegic.
Overall, this genuinely heartwarming film gave me hope and reminded me that even during hard times, we cannot give up. I recommend you watch this soon.
