Cool story that depicts what’s easy for most, is practically impossible for those born or afflicted with physical disabilities. Raw and almost documentary style acting, the actors offer great depth and respect to the characters they’re portraying. Recommend!
If you want to laugh, if you want to cry, if you want to feel inspired, if you want to try to sympathize with the struggles of others, if you want a film that will appeal to nearly everyone in your family, if you want to see deeply serious acting and storytelling where you forget you are watching a film and are shocked that the actors are actors, where the characters come alive and blaze through the deep commitment and skill of those involved, in short, if you want to feel alive, watch this film.
So refreshing to see a film based on challenges people don’t usually talk about that I’m glad to be made aware of. I so appreciate that it was done with humor, insight, and heart. The performances were great. Made me laugh out loud and also cry. Guess I’ll be buying this one too!
It's a rainy day and it's been raining for the last week. This film was such a delight and lifted my mood. Everyone in it was superb. I hope more stories and films like this are made. I love the new faces (well new to me) like Hayden Szeto and Grant Rosenmeyer as well as familiar ones like Gabourey Sidibe and Ravi Patel.
