I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on Legit. I was please the reviewer used "confined" to describe life in a nursing home, and not life using a wheelchair. I just couldn't parse this notion: While it might have been preferable to have an actor with muscular dystrophy playing Billy, Qualls turns in a very funny, physically astute performance that’s enriched rather than inhibited by Billy’s limited mobility.

Is Alyssa Rosenberg saying that because someone has typical mobility, they can do a better job impersonating someone with limited mobility? I'm really asking.

This essay is somewhat related: challenges people who write about/work in disability to be up front about their relationship to disability, in whatever form.
