Diving Normal is deeper than some viewers perceive. For those in the special needs community, it is a touching film about what true inclusion is about,that those with special needs have a purpose and ability to live beyond their label. Krisjan Thor's direction, Philipp Karner's, Scotty Crowe's and Ashlin Halfnight's script,and Crowe's and Susie Abromeit's performances make this a subtle and engaging film for those with patience and eyes to see. Some will compare and determine this film a poor man's Rainman, with a less famous cast. But, as Rainman introduced many to the challenging world of autism, Diving Deep likewise opens eyes to the ultimate hope of those with special needs and their families,to be truly accepted for who they are and what they offer, not for what they lack or how they live life with an asterisk and label. If you get the opportunity, wade into the water.
