Standing Up for Sunny

Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte stars in this Australian rom-com about a loner with cerebral palsy who helps a comedian overcome her shyness.

"Mitte, who has cerebral palsy in real life, gives a winning performance as Travis, a young man living in a ramshackle Sydney rental whose disability contributes to his social isolation and anger management issues. When he loses his maintenance job after lashing out at bullies, Travis ends up in a pub, where he puts his withering sarcasm to good use defending Sunny – a reluctant up-and-comer on the comedy circuit – from a sexist heckler. Soon Mikey (Sam Reid), the pub's owner and Sunny's overbearing boyfriend, hires Travis to help train Sunny in the art of the comeback, and naturally sparks ensue – along with romance and laughs aplenty."

The film is certainly amiable, and the low budget gives it a sense of immediacy and authenticity ... There are some obvious problems though...
