So I told you a while back that our family was featured in a documentary called Normie. It’s a film that tells the story of Annemarie, a young adult with Down syndrome, as she wrestles with the idea of being “normal.” It’s also a coming-of-age story for all of us who have wrestled with questions of identity and goodness and God and whether our lives have any purpose or meaning.
AND our family (from a few years back) got to be in it.
I’m telling you about this again now because I’ve just learned that Normie is now available for streaming. It’s a great family movie that includes a mentalist (aka magician), a tattooed pastor from Seattle, a medical doctor, and a girl named Penny dancing in her local production of the Nutcracker.
You can view the trailer and stream the film here. I hope you love it as much as we do.
