I chose the third prompt because we get to witness some scenes in the film that portray disability on another level which reflects down to the main novel.The film not only portrayed disability, but it showed disability in a different context from what we initially would think we would have seen. Although, Adam the creature is illiterate and mentally impaired he has the capacity to hurt individuals with the power of his hands. This is significant because in society people see disabled people as helpless and the need for more caring, but Adam on the other hand is strong and smart after he learns a few things from his friend Eddie. Adams physical abilities show us that he was like no other, but these doctors that thought he was disabled due to his lack of knowledge were wrong and ignorant to assume he didn’t have the ability to gain knowledge.
