Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte stars in this charming Australian rom-com about a loner with cerebral palsy who is roped into helping a comedian (Philippa Northeast) overcome her shyness. Mitte, who has cerebral palsy in real life, gives a winning performance as Travis, a young man livin...g in a ramshackle Sydney rental whose disability contributes to his social isolation and anger management issues. When he loses his maintenance job after lashing out at bullies, Travis ends up in a pub, where he puts his withering sarcasm to good use defending Sunny a reluctant up-and-comer on the comedy circuit from a sexist heckler. Soon Mikey (Sam Reid), the pub's owner and Sunny's overbearing boyfriend, hires Travis to help train Sunny in the art of the comeback, and naturally sparks ensue along with romance and laughs aplenty. Standing Up for Sunny is a lively comedy with plenty to say about living with disability and discrimination.
