“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.
“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.” – RogerEbert.com
“A young autistic man connects to the world through Disney animated movies. Instead of false hope, this truly inspirational film offers up possibility, the chance of a stimulus that might get past the blocks of developmental disorder.” – Rolling Stone
“If you believe in magic, Life, Animated is the potion for you.” – Hollywood Reporter
