Missy Malek’s WE’RE TOO GOOD FOR THIS is a BAFTA worthy refreshing film played by authentic disabled actors

We’re too good for this, starring British deaf and disabled actors.

We’re Too Good For This, is a 12 minute short that follows four young people – Scott (Keron Day), Fatima (Asnath Iosala), Anthony (Asa Hems) and Julian (Jayden Reid) – who take revenge on a vindictive small-time drug dealer by stealing his stash and quickly find themselves face to face with a murderous kingpin (played by Adam Deacon). 

Written and directed by Missy Malek, We’re Too Good For This is a unique, authentic and gripping thriller about a group of disabled teenagers on a British council estate, who prove they should never be underestimated. The film was inspired by a real-life group of disabled drug dealers operating in London.

The four main characters are all played by British disabled actors, and their portrayal is just phenomenal! Missy Malek has done an excellent job of portraying them as ordinary teenagers rather than following the stereotypes and causing the audience to feel sorry for them. Instead the director plays on their strengths. Living with a disability isn’t always about the disability itself but about life in general. The highs and lows that come with it. It is also refreshing to see authentic disabled actors playing themselves.
