Welcome to this list of feature films which involve disabilities.
This site presents a detailed list of 2,500 feature films which involve in one way or another various disabilities. It is directed towards teachers, students and anyone who has an interest in how disability is represented in films.
Of course I have not seen all the films here but I have written a brief summary for nearly all the films. For more recent films you will find a number of detailed reviews at http://imdb.com. The AMG site http://www.allmovie.com is good for summaries but doesn't have reviews.
Hopefully visitors will send their own views on the films here or suggest films which should included.
This site is closing soon, please make links to: http://www.disabilityfilms.co.uk

The language of a film is that of the country unless otherwise stated. The English title is given except where there isn't one, or there are too many titles and to choose one might cause confusion.
All accents e.g. circumflex, umlauts have been removed because they become corrupted converting from database to html.
I should love to point out where a disabled actor plays a part but 99% of the time I don't know.
To get hold of videos try Internet search engines. Remember that different continents uses different formats.
If you consider my comments on a film are ill-judged then please send your opinion and I'll include it.
