I watched this in class today. It's very powerful. It follows several real people living real lives. It's also uplifting in that dark comedic type of way that you might not get if you've yet to experience life with hindrance.

This documentary is wonderful insight into a sociopolitical model of disability- how society, not the medical characteristics of an individual, cause disability.

I am also a hemiplegic and this movie shows people a brief glimpse of how hard it is to go from a normal life to waking up one day from a coma and now only having half of you to contend with....

Mr. Golfus gives an insight into our society and politics that is at once sobering, entertaining, and powerful. The film holds a clear and beautifully deep mirror up to American views on disability. everyone should watch this with a friend.
