Larry and Sophie live in a world that wants to keep them apart, but they won't let pass them by. Larry (Kieran Coppinger) and Sophie (Charlene Kelly), book a hotel room with the help of their care worker Tom (Robert Doherty), for some 'alone time'. However, Larry has Down's and Sophie has epilepsy. What they are about to do is against the law, and there could be serious consequences. Meanwhile other members of their group, stuck in the cinema, break for their own freedoms, causing a major headache for the hapless Tom.
Funny, sweet & heartwarming! Worth a watch.

Great energy and characterisation.
- Sanctuary review by TE
Excellent tale which asks difficult questions about how our society deals with issues such as disability and sexual desire.
The entire cast do a brilliant job. The overall tone is humorous, but there is also an ominous sense of things spiralling out of control.
If anything, the director tries to pack in one or two too many sub-plots and it all becomes a bit baggy.
However, the final feeling is of life-affirming resilience, plus an urge to make things better.

Humorous, tender, and thought-provoking

What a remarkable film! Using actors with disabilities, this film encourages its audience both to see the funny aspects of the situations which develop, but also to think seriously about the questions it raises.
