The movie, rather admirably isn't black and white about the issues it raises.
What Sanctuary shows is that a film can come from humble beginnings and a small budget but can have a big outcome on society.
(The) casting, and the skilled performances it brings us, are sufficient reasons to find the movie heartening, but the script is also of value. Although fairly rough-hewn, it has subtle touches and it campaigns on a noteworthy topic.
Thoughtful, nuanced and fun, Sanctuary subverts received ideas about disability in its very approach to filmmaking.
Christian O'Reilly's screenplay combines elements from the typical feelgood drama with harsher insights into the lives of the protagonists.
This deft delight resolutely refuses to patronise the performers or the audience. It has a sincerity, wit and compassion that recalls Justin Edgar's 2005 short film Special People.
There's a wonderful warmth and directness to this movie.
A devastating conclusion leaves us with an aching sadness and some quite profound questions about the basic human right to love the person we choose.
[An] insightful exploration of the difficult realities of life for those who don't conform to widely accepted norms, and its celebration of the power of human connection - whomever we may be.
Sweet, smart and funny.
The charm, honesty and gently woebegone jokes are what win you.
O'Reilly's script has been written around the actors so the ensemble is particularly strong.
