    Excellent movie!!! Does a really good job at showing what people go through and how they feel. It is so important to be kind, empathetic and respectful. We are all different and special but that does not make one person better or more normal than another.

    Thank you so much for including this movie. My ASL classes love it. It used to be on Netflix, but it's not there anymore, so imagine my delight in finding that it's here!

    Some things in the movie really makes the student realize they are not the only ones experiencing both negative and positive situations.

    Excellent video to use in a classroom, either self-contained or included. Stopping at intervals to get student feedback would be very useful.
