Powerful film
12 May 2015 | by (Renfrewshire) – See all my reviews

I saw this film last night and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Extremely well written, excellent acting and the music was just perfect.

Like many, I hadn't realized the extent of Disability Hate Crime, and just how many crimes are not reported. It was certainly an eye opener and very thought provoking.

A very powerful movie that I would highly recommend (would also recommend bringing some tissues!).Also, a nice little twist at the end! Huge congrats to all involved in 'I Am Me', I look forward to seeing this film again soon.
