Loved this film!
5 October 2010 | by kwigger29See all my reviews

This is a great film that breaks with the conventional portrayals of disability in the media.

Fun to watch and as haphazard as the tour it documents. It is honest and thoughtful and gives each character more room to define themselves than TV normally allows. It is as much about disability as it is about creating our own identity through the relationships we make with others.

Butchins has accomplished an amazing feat, keeping structure in mayhem and challenging our perceptions of disability as often as the freak show changes vehicles.
