Director Randall Wright keeps things simple. Nothing much happens, really, but the film's optimistic take on life is like an easygoing stroll through a verdant forest. It's invigorating.
Wright's film provides considerable insight into how various special-needs conditions might be better handled by society than they are presently.
The movie's Edenic vision prioritizes long footage of group meals and daily routines over talk of funding or governmental policy, which will suit viewers wanting to vicariously experience a community where acceptance is the overriding principle.
"Summer in the Forest" is an extraordinarily tender documentary that asks what it means to be human. Here, even the most gentle scenes raise mighty questions.
It's quite a story, one that, like all good stories, turns out to have meaning for anyone.
Regardless of it all, the characters are so uninhibited and candid they achieve, without effort, a naturalism that would be the envy of any method actor.
Modest, intimate documentary about L'Arche, an international organization for the disabled, and its founder Jean Vanier.
Do try to catch Summer In The Forest, an affectionate and joyously uplifting portrait of Jean Vanier, a philosopher and former Canadian Navy officer who appears as close to a living saint as you can imagine.
This is a calm and often affecting study of L'Arche, a community of people with learning disabilities in Trosly-Breuil, northern France.
This tender-hearted documentary presents fond memories of the elderly residents and celebrates this gentle haven of compassion.
