Special People (2008)

Part of the NO SEASON

Director: Justin Edgar
Certificate: BBFC PG
Format: 35mm
Language: English

Justin Edgar will be present at his film about a neurotic filmmaker working with disabled young people and getting everything wrong. The film broke ground by hiring wheelchair using actors for disabled parts, a practice which is scandalously rare. It also caused a stir when the BBFC bizarrely gave it an initial 12A certificate because it "deals with disability issues". It's actually a lovely neurotic comedy.
