E72 - Benny & Joon (1993)

The Bad Stabber

Today we watched Benny & Joon, a whimsical comedy about a mentally ill young woman who pursues Johnny Depp while her brother resists the pressure to place her in a group home. We also discuss coping mechanisms for insomnia, the able bodied misconception that disability is reprieve from responsibility, Jamie destroying his mother's kitchen floor, and the utter cruelty of tickling a wheelie.

A special thanks to our Power Chair Patrons: Michael Cumming, Meghan Walsh, Kyle Hanna, Riley Byrne, Andrew Gurza and cjoudas.
