A film to check out

“The Music Within”

is the story of Richard Pimbertel, one of those involved in the passage of the ADA.

The review is interesting enough in itself, stating that there needs to be more conflict in the film, and that (italics mine) the obstacles that the main character faces are too easy to overcome

In otherwords, the film was less interesting since the main character’s obstacles should have been more obviously difficult and that more strain should have been shown in overcoming them…

I don’t know if film portrayals of disability can win anymore. Either we’re too grim and depressing “Nobody wins,” said a writer relative of mine, or we don’t ‘suffer’ enough.

I’m going to rent the film and see what’s what.
