This short documentary is fantastic. It shows that you shouldn't let anything stop you from doing what you love. Improv at Daybreak is about an acting program for developmentally challenged people. They talk about their experiences and the things they've done in their Monday morning acting class. We also hear from the instructors of the program who talk about their experiences in the class. It is pretty well filmed, although some of it appears to have been filmed with a phone or a low quality video camera. I noticed a young girl wearing a "Wicked" shirt, being a huge fan myself. It takes place at the place that hosts the acting program, which looks like a decorated, fun version of a public school. During their acting class, they wear fun accessories such as feather boas, colorful hats and shawls. The music is light, happy and fun. It really sets the mood of the film. The message of the film is that it doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, what you wear, or anything, you can always do what you love. I really liked when it shows the people acting in the class. They're enjoying themselves and they don't seem to have a care in the world. I give this 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 9 to 18, definitely adults as well. I feel like it's a topic we should all know about, even if only a little. This would definitely fit into KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals, especially those with a focus on people with special needs. Reviewed by Kayenta C., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic
