About Disability On Film: Inside I'm Dancing

Michael (Steven Robertson) has cerebral palsy and is drifting through life in a nursing home until the appearance of Rory (James McAvoy). Under Rory’s leadership the pair team up to escape the home, a bond threatened by the appearance in their lives of care worker Siobhan (Romola Garai).

Casting two able-bodied actors as disabled characters now seems ill thought out, but what Inside I’m Dancing does get right is portraying those same characters as three-dimensional, complex people unafraid to make dark humour out of their sometimes frustrating lives.
