Disability Films

The following websites provide lists of films that involve disabilities. Of course, none of them aim at a list of films that are evaluated on the basis of an Orthodox Christian view of reality. And so we must be discerning of whether or not the filmmakers in their efforts are seeking for the true, the good, and the beautiful, which is ultimately found in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the personal God Who is the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, to Whom be glory, honor, and worship unto the ages of ages, Amen.

A short award winning film (1999):

Still too many? Here’s Susan M. LoTempio‘s “very short list” of best disability films- two! But beware; her first recommendation is “Murderball.” The second is “Notting Hill.” http://www.raggededgemagazine.com/departments/reflections/000643.html
