If Robert De Niro loves it...

&hlThe film Monica & David, about a couple with Down syndrome, won Best Documentary this year at Robert De Niro’s own Tribeca Film Festival.

The film is a complex story about the way the world perceives disability, as well as what sorts of obstacles and triumphs two people experience working toward an independent life together. De Niro told New York magazine that he was impressed with the film, and ended up choosing it out of three top choices for the win.

You can see it tonight when the Big Sky Film Series screens the film at the Wilma Theatre, at 7:30 p.m.

In the meantime, check out the trailer:
