With two new films featuring actors with Down syndrome slated for release in the coming weeks, Hollywood prospects for those with the developmental disorder are on the rise.
Actors with Down syndrome play central roles in “Café de Flore,” which focuses on the relationship between a mother and her son with the disorder in Paris in the 1960′s, and “Any Day Now,” a movie based on the true story of a teenager with Down syndrome who was taken in by a gay couple.
