The Rainbow Kid

The Rainbow Kid

I’m not much of a movie buff and I’ve never been to TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival). But I am really intrigued by one of this year’s entries. It’s a Canadian film and it’s having its world premiere at TIFF in the Discovery category. A lot of the money to make it was raised through crowd funding. The film is called The Rainbow Kid. It follows a teenager with Down Syndrome in the story of his life. And what a story!

The teen, Eugene, is bullied and neglected and decided that the solution is to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As he chases his dream across Ontario, through fact and fiction, myth and realty merge and the film ends up as a coming of age movie. You may have seen the actor Dylan Harman in other roles. He’s been acting since the age of 5! I can hardly wait till the film makes it to Ottawa. I’ll be lining up.
