A trip to Oz
3 April 2006 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Yellow Brick Road" is a documentary that steals our heart away. Watching these young people prepare for the production of "The Wizard of Oz", based on the MGM film, opens our eyes to the transformation they are going through. Directors Keith Rondinelli and Matthew Makar pay tribute to the earnest mentally challenged kids that are showcased in the documentary and the fantastic teachers that love, help, and guide them.

The documentary works because of the sweetness and innocence all the young people bring with them. It's also wonderful the way their teachers involve them in a play that obviously resonates with all of them. For this viewer the highlight of "Yellow Brick Road" happens at the beginning as one young woman is selected to play Ms. Gulch, the role played by Margaret Hamilton in the film. It's hard not to cry watching her reaction as she almost hyperventilates from the emotion.

Thanks to Mr. Rondinello and Mr. Makar for sharing their experience and introducing us to a bunch of real winners. The documentary is positive and it should be seen by many people, as it shows us a group of kids who might be mentally challenged, but have the right attitude, and are so positive despite of their problems.
