MY NEW FAVORITE MOVIE!
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2019
I LOVE THIS MOVIE. We bought this before it even came out after having seen it in the theater. Our youngest daughter has Down syndrome. Can I just say how fun Down syndrome is? I LOVE MY KID! This movie showed the multi dimensionality of a person who has a disability rather than making them a mascot or some weirdly noble caricature. My sister thought some of the lines Zack said were a little forced, but it is VERY real for persons with Down Syndrome to struggle with their words. I love how Tyler/Shia interacted with Zack. ASSUME COMPETENCE. Annabelle (our daughter) cooks, uses knives, can -- although often chooses not to -- clean up after herself. She is an amazing swimmer. If people knew how fun kids with DS are, they'd all be demanding one of their own!
