A life changing movie- opening eyes and hearts
6 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

This move was incredibly heartwarming. It was a fantastic film, not just because it highlighted the reality of down syndrome, but because it truly captured the reality of everyday life. It should be commended for its bold efforts in changing the stereotypes of people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities. However, the movie is so much more than a cause- it is a generally fantastic film. From the actors, to the filmography, to the story, this movie excels. It is touching, moving, and enjoyable. This movie goes where no other move has gone- it truly highlights life. I recommend this movie wholly on the fact that it is well made, not just as an activist for equality for people with disabilities, but as a person who laughed and cried during this fantastic piece.
