Widge’s note: Please welcome Jorge de la Cova to the site, friend of our own Rob Levy. Rob mentioned this documentary in the latest Weekend Justice and, right on cue, here’s Jorge with a review. Excellent timing.
How do you solve a problem like Betsy?
On the one hand, Betsy Goodrich, subject of the documentary film Disabled But Able to Rock, is a highly functional middle-aged woman living with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. On the other, Betsy lives the fantasy life of an eight-year-old, showering her love on her numerous stuffed pets. Betsy herself describes the difference between her life and the life of “normals” as a heightening of her senses. Lights and sounds on steroids.
