Documentary Review – 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story (2021)

Based on the autobiography The Seven Longest Yards by Chris and Emily Norton, this new documentary 7 Yards: The Chris Norton Story depicts Chris Norton’s journey of physical therapy as he works his way back from a terrible football injury. At 18 years old at Luther College in 2010, Chris took a freak tackle and was left paralyzed from the neck down.

If you’re familiar with Norton’s story, this is a film that is very hard to spoil as Chris and Emily went viral, to the tune over 300 million combined views, for Chris walking Emily seven yards down the aisle. The film isn’t about the end; it’s about the journey there and the perseverance by Chris in his recovery.
