“The Little Mermaid,” “The Lion King” and other animated Disney movies help a young autistic man to develop reading, writing and communication skills.


From Academy Award® winning director Roger Ross Williams, LIFE, ANIMATED is the inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence.


Critic Quotes: 

“It’s the best Disney movie that Disney didn’t make.” – IndieWire

“Life, Animated” is powerful and emotional, without being manipulative. It is deeply inspiring, without trying to be.” –
