Overview

Tony Robbins has an impressive list of people on his CV, with Mother Teresa and the late Princess Diana being perhaps the most remarkable. As the celebrated motivational author and speaker puts it, everyone has their 'thing' – and his is helping people.

Director Joe Berlinger is well-known for his documentaries focusing on true crime and social issues. With this film, at once deeply personal and public, Berlinger reveals the personal trauma that led Robbins to make motivational speaking his life's work. There's no question Robbins has an unusual gift for connection: for seeing the pain inside people and identifying its cause. To see Robbins' conviction play out in a hall full of 2,500 people, each looking for the breakthrough that will free them to live their authentic life, is extraordinary.

This is the first time Robbins has allowed external cameras in to film a Date with Destiny, his seminar that mixes the ecstatic exuberance of an evangelical meeting with the intimacy of a therapy session. We follow the stories of half a dozen attendees chosen for one-on-one attention and supported by the entire room, and learn their results as the end credits roll.
