    Revelatory for the disabled and entertaining for the rest of us.

    Few true-life stories are as inspiring as that of Darko Kralj, the subject of Dejan Acimovic's new documentary The King.

    An admiring but restrained documentary about Darko Kralj, a Paralympic shot-putter from Croatia. The film is more about what it takes to overcome adversity and recommit to finding meaning in life, terrain that anyone with a disability has to negotiate, athlete or not.

    Beautifully shot, the film is unapologetically a crowd-pleaser whose gentleness of tone flows from its subject.
