Films that portray disability - what are they, what portrayal do they offer, what do we learn either about the disability but also about the authors?

  • Dear John - autism
  • Rainman - autism
  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame
  • Richard III
  • Avatar
  • Finding Nemo
  • Batman
  • My Left Foot
  • District 9
  • Enemy Mine

Do 'superhumans' whether physical or mental have a disability too?

Or rather, if we see difference as an issue 'we' are going to see 'problems' everywhere.

The problem is only to cater for the majority groups.

The list will be a long one, with good, poor and dreadful expressions of disability, inclusivity and so on. What can you add to the list?
