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.
