Heavy Load

There is a truly great film out that I believe EVERYONE would benefit from seeing. It'a called Heavy Load and it's a documentary.

You ask what makes this movie so special? It's about the lives of a Punk Band from England as they pursue their dream of making music for a living. What makes their band stand out from others are the members themselves. 3 of the 5 musicians have developmental disabilities (in England labeled learning disabled), and the other 2 are guys who either currently or in the past supported them in the community.

I don't want to give out too much information about the film because I'd hate to ruin it for people who choose to see it. I will say there is a fabulous sub plot that involves some serious advocacy, which in itself is inspiring.

If you want to see an honest, moving and educational film, you MUST see Heavy Load.
