    Entertaining

    This film manages to explore some difficult issues without being
    depressing or condescending.

    The main character, Shonzi is developmentally delayed and he uses the
    sympathy this often evokes in others, as a weapon to manipulate them.

    This is a challenging film to make fun, enjoyable and positive but
    Linas Phillips, the director and writer (who plays Shonzi), succeeds in
    doing so.

    The film provides good insight into the challenges faced by Shonzi and
    those around him, but it avoids being tub thumping and over-emotional.
    The characters and the audience are treated as adults; sexuality and
    disability are explored with confidence and realism.

    I tend to see films that explore ”issues”, as educational rather than
    entertaining. But this is different. It is entertaining but I also felt
    I had effortlessly learned something new by the end of the film.
