Beau’s Red Carpet Premiere of LITTLE ACCIDENTS

www.kmiphotography.comA hush washed over the cinema lobby.

Sandwiched in between hundreds of people, I found myself panning the crowd taking in the palpable excitement in the air.

www.kmiphotography.comWith reporters and cameras poised and a red carpet unfurled, we were ready for this moment – a moment that began nearly two years ago when we first received the call that changed the course of Beau’s life, as we learned he had been cast in the film, LITTLE ACCIDENTS.

What has unfolded since that day has brought Beau more happiness, confidence and affirmation than most of us experience in a lifetime.

Not only did he realize his potential as an actor, he carved out a place for himself in the world and in doing so found an identity that made him feel incredibly proud.

He had become a “star”.

STAR: An object when placed in a certain position can influence people’s lives.

 As the crowd erupted with applause, Beau took his place on the red carpet and owned every word of that definition.

For the next few hours, Beau posed for pictures, shook hands, shared hugs, answered reporter’s questions, signed autographs and thanked every one of his guests for being a part of his special day.

 The icing on the cake came the next day in a Wall Street Journal review of the film which said,

“Another stellar performance comes from Beau Wright, who has Down Syndrome, as Lofland’s little brother, James.”

A Great Adventure!

WV_72213_0461-2It was the summer of 2013, as the sun rose over the hills of West Virginia and the cameras began to roll that Beau began the greatest adventure of his life so far – filming the independent feature film, LITTLE ACCIDENTS.

1453506_678240892196388_2131399331_nFrom that moment forward, Beau found his new identity – an identity that made him feel capable, talented, successful and valued – adjectives that aren’t often used to describe people with Down syndrome – but on that day, Beau felt all of those things and more as he became a “movie star”.


What has unfolded since that summer has not only been a great adventure for Beau, but for our entire family and I’d venture to say that it’s been a great ride for all of you that have followed Beau’s journey, too.


One week from today, LITTLE ACCIDENTS will be released nationwide and also available on iTunes.

To celebrate this much anticipated day, our family will be hosting a Red Carpet Premiere of the movie in our hometown of Wilmington.

For our little guy that was born blind and walked with leg braces until he was three, this moment will once again prove that he is capable, talented, successful and valued.
