Very Inspirational film
16 April 2007 | by (Baltimore) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie as part of a sociology class in college. We were learning about the discrimination people with disabilities face.

King Gimp is about a young man named Dan Keplinger who was born with cerebral palsy. When he was 12, two filmmakers in Baltimore began to document his life. Even though he was extremely intelligent, it was amazing to see how people sometimes treated him because of his speech impediment and physical disabilities. They filmed him up until he was about age 25. The only issue I had with the movie was that it was very difficult to understand his speech at times.

Otherwise, this was truly an inspirational movie!
