GABRIELLE (M)

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIE REVIEWS -

A sweet, heart-tug­ging slice-of-lifer about a young in­tel­lec­tu­ally-im­paired woman on the road from de­pen­dence to in­de­pen­dence. Gabrielle (played with ar­rest­ing pres­ence by Gabrielle Mar­i­onRi­vard, a suf­ferer of the rare ge­netic con­di­tion known as Wil­liams Syn­drome) is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the highs and lows of first love with a mem­ber of her lo­cal choir. Some view­ers will find the film too ea­ger to ma­nip­u­late the emo­tions, but its heart re­mains in the right place through­out.
