Wondering why times are missing?

Life, Animated

This unique documentary combines animation and live-action footage to relate the coming-of-age story of a boy who overcame great challenges by turning Disney movies into a language to express love, loss, kinship and brotherhood. It's based on the bestselling 2014 book by Ron Suskind, whose son Owen was diagnosed with a pervasive developmental disorder at a very young age. When the family realized Owen had the ability to memorize dialogue from animated movies, however, they started using Disney films as a tool to teach him how to speak, read and write. 89 minutes PG.
