Directed by Alexandra Codina '00
Monica & David is the love story of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David are blissfully in love and want what other adults have -- an independent life. Full of humor, romance and everyday family drama, the film uses intimate fly-on-the-wall footage to reveal the complexity of their story. While Monica and David are capable beyond expectations, their parents, afraid of mainstream rejection of adults with intellectual disabilities, have trouble letting go.
Directed and produced by Monica's cousin, first-time fimmaker Alexandra Codina [Bowdoin Class of 2000], Monica & David is a crowd-pleasing romance that "swerves around the mind and goes straight for the heartstrings" (Newsweek).
