Monica & David


Monica & David explores the marriage of two adults with Down syndrome and the family who strives to support their needs. Monica and David embody child-like spirits with adult desires; they are aware of their need for assistance, but also capable beyond traditional expectations.
Behind the couple’s blissful love are two mothers who struggled against an intolerant world, and with this wedding, realize a dream.


  • The Boston Herald
    "Monica & David is more than a love story; it is a reverential, nuanced movie that shows that people with developmental disabilities want the same things everyone wants out of life."
  • The Washington Post
    "It's a moving affair, a film that can inspire tears of joy in the first five minutes."
  • Variety
    “Neither overly sentimental nor insistently uplifting, "Monica & David”…proves unexpectedly engrossing.”
