  • Wretches and Jabberers - follow Tracy and Larry (two men with Autism) and their two support workers, Harvey and Pascal, as they travel to different countries and advocate for people with Different Abilities. Tracy and Larry were both non-communicative until adulthood when they both learned to type as a form of communication. This opened amazing doors for them and for everyone else as they were now able to see the extreme intelligence and awareness that was trapped in their minds. Tracy and Larry are amazing advocates who fight for what is right. I think the best part of this documentary is that they show both sides of Autism, the ups and the downs. I think that is a very vital aspect in any documentary about any Different Ability. This is a very uplifting and view-changing documentary about autism.  
  • The Intouchables - A wonderful diverse story set in Paris, the aristocratic and intellectual Philippe is a quadriplegic millionaire who is interviewing candidates for the position of his carer, with his red-haired secretary Magalie. Out of the blue, the rude African Driss cuts the line of candidates and brings a document from the Social Security and asks Phillipe to sign it to prove that he is seeking a job position so he can receive his unemployment benefit. Philippe challenges Driss, offering him a trial period of one month to gain experience helping him. Then Driss can decide whether he would like to stay with him or not. Driss accepts the challenge and moves to the mansion, changing the boring life of Phillipe and his employees.
  • Rory O'Shea was Here - Another wonderful movie set In Dublin, the rebel Rory O'Shea moves to the Carrigmore Residential Home for the Disabled, affecting the lives of the residents. Rory is able to understand the unintelligible speech of Michael Connolly, who was left in the shelter by his prominent father many years ago due to his cerebral palsy, and they become close friends. Rory convinces Michael to move from Carrigmore to an apartment in Dublin, and they hire the gorgeous Siobhan to assist them. Living together with Rory, Michael faces a new world, finding friendship, love and freedom and learning to survive by his own.
  • What’s Eating Gilbert Grape —  Gilbert (Johnny Depp) must care for his brother (Leonardo DiCaprio), who has autism, and his mother who is obese. Oscar nominations: Best supporting actor (DiCaprio)
