What People Are Saying

"The Shot Felt 'Round the World" is a remarkably gripping and constantly fascinating account of one of medicine's greatest and most emotional triumphs, the defeat of the dreaded polio virus. The filmmakers are skilled storytellers who make this battle compelling and vivid, taking us back to a time in our country that was paradoxically both more dangerous and more innocent, and at the same time making it a tale highly relevant for today. The film is so effective in conveying the human cost of the virus and the desperate urgency to find a cure that it plays like an edge of the seat thriller."
