Disability Representation in the Movie ‘Run’
I watched the movie “Run” on Hulu. I am always curious when I see actors in wheelchairs in film, and to my pleasured surprise, the actress was disabled and used a wheelchair! The movie is about a young girl whose mother cared for her while she was sick. Or, at least, she was ill. I won’t ruin the movie for you, but it was excellent, and I believe Kiera Allen, the actress in the wheelchair, did a phenomenal job!
Do you care whether or not the person portraying the character is disabled? Have you been interested in acting but held back because you haven’t seen many people with disabilities in movies and shows? What sort of acting or theater have you partaken in, and was your character disabled or treated as a typical character?
