Sanctuary

Another contrived feel-good movie that celebrates diversity. With almost one in seven here having a disability it's about time we had something like this. Sadly, it's a dull effort with bad acting, dull pacing, ordinary settings, unfunny scenes (most which are too short), and little that stands out. A group of people with intellectual disabilities visit the cinema. Two creep off to a hotel room for sex, another pair leaves to find the first couple, while the supervisor tries to track everyone down. It's just not funny or even good. Only the condom scene stands out and the indie songs are also quite good. But the drab pacing kills the movie, it's not slow enough for observational comedy but not fast enough to keep the audience interested. Never kicks out of first gear. Surely it would have been funnier with a flustered woman in charge rather than a dull man? Set in December though not an Xmas movie.
