    I think it's great that disabled people are getting more representation on screen and I'll be watching it!  

    For anyone who has Netflix I'd also recommend Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution.  This is a film about an American summer camp that took place in the 1960's for young disabled people.  Some of the people who attended went on to become famous disability activists like Judy Heumann.  It's really interesting to watch and see the fun they got up to :)
