Almost four years passed and the only thing that seemed to engage Owen were Disney films. Then one day his father donned one of his son's puppets--Iago, the wisecracking parrot from Aladdin--and asked 'What's it like to be you?' Suddenly, Owen responded to his father using dialogue from the movie ... Life, Animated tells the remarkable story of how Owen found a pathway to language and a framework for making sense of the world through Disney animated films. By evocatively interweaving classic Disney sequences with vérité scene's from Owen's life, the film explores how identification and empathy with characters like Simba, Jafar and Ariel create a context for him to understand his feelings and interpret reality"--Container.

A very enjoyable film. Nice insight into Owen's life and a different look at Disney.

Patron comment on

A good honest and insightful glimpse into the life of a young man coming to terms with his autism and growing up using Disney films as his way of interpreting the world. Good to get his family's perspective too. Informative and entertaining.
