E12 - Inside I'm Dancing (2004)

Tony Hopkins

Inside I'm Dancing, also released under the title Rory O'Shea Was Here, is an Irish 2004 comedy-drama starring James McAvoy and the ever dependable Brenda Fricker. The film is a fun bromance between two wheelies who escape institutional care and try to live independently. Despite mediocre review scores, it turned out to be one of our favourites, mostly for the authenticity of its disabled aesthetics, light hearted tone, and thoughtful smaller moments. Throughout the episode, we discuss the significance of hairgel, the tragedy of displaced cripple laundry, deadbeat parents, and speech impediments.
