Live Action Short featuring Mentally Retarded Performers
20 March 2004 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This is a difficult film for me to review, and I did not appreciate it at first. Most of the movie seems like a documentary and it is not until the end that you realize this is a regular short drama instead. The unusual aspect is that most of the actors and actresses are obviously severely mentally retarded in their real lives. It is not an enjoyable film per se; however, once you recognize that it is not a documentary, you recognize the true value and merit of the film. It must have been an unusual challenge to produce and direct this work, and that is probably why it received an Oscar. Board and Care is difficult to locate, but it is available from Pyramid Media.
