The heart-touching film, Margarita With A Straw leaves us with questions about what we perceive to be normal. Who gets to define what is normal? The film gives us a reality check by questioning why we as a society as so quick to judge everyone?
Through the eyes of Laila (Kalki Koechlin), we are shown how we tend to overlook the small joys in our fast-paced lives. Despite the fact that Laila is born with cerebral palsy, she fights, loves hard and enjoys every moment of her life.
Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, which has produced the film has recently released a video inspired by the film. The video is titled, “Stop Judging, Start Living“, and it questions why we are quick to judge people? The video showcases some of the things that society considers different. At the end of the 2 minute 19 second video, Kalki gives an inspiring message for all those who sit and judge people based on what they wear and what they do. Grab the tissue box and enjoy the video!
