  1. Ezekiel Vizzer

    This film does a good job engaging the audience with the everyday tasks that we tend to overlook as trivial and common place and mixing them with Billy’s disability and homosexual needs to create a more relatable story for viewers. While I can relate to gay issues that Billy struggles with, I cannot relate to the issues that he deals with due to his disability. The film helped me to relate and empathize with the struggles that those with disabilities have and the actions we can take to help the people who deal with this issues on a day to day basis. Overall, great film, informative and made the emotional connection needed.

    Watching this made my problems and the things I want small. I am scared, I don’t want to end up alone like him.
