PostSubject: "Be my brother"   Mon 23 Feb 2009 - 9:01

This is the short film that won tropfest this year (was presented last night I think). I don't know anything about it, but just saw on the news that it is about a boy with Down syndrome, and the lead actor (who of course has DS!) also won best actor. He looked terrific.

I would love to know how I could view this film. Has anyone seen it? Anyone know?

Thanks Coral Cool That was bloody fantastic!!! I think it also really highlights the impact that our kids with DS have on their siblings, for Geneveive to choose it as her movie subject. What a great message it has sent to the world. I just love how he weaved his way into Amanda's heart, this is something I see Andy do time and time again with strangers ROFL no inhibitions, it's great !!

The actor was really funny and easy to like. here is another tropfest movie from 2005 that I found rivetting, not DS but you'll probably need tissues, Coral
