Breaking Bad’s RJ Mitte stars in this charming Australian rom-com about a loner with cerebral palsy who is roped into helping a comedian (Philippa Northeast) overcome her shyness. Mitte, who has cerebral palsy in real life, gives an empowering performance as Travis, a young man living in a ramshackle Sydney rental whose disability contributes to his social isolation and anger management issues. When he loses his maintenance job after lashing out at bullies, Travis ends up in a pub, where he puts his withering sarcasm to good use defending Sunny – a reluctant up-and-comer on the comedy circuit – from a sexist heckler. Soon Mikey (Sam Reid), the pub’s owner and Sunny’s overbearing boyfriend, hires Travis to help train Sunny in the art of the comeback, and naturally sparks ensue – along with romance and laughs aplenty. Standing Up For Sunny is a lively comedy with plenty to say about living with disability and discrimination.
