Synopsis

THE TRUE STORY OF A MODERN-DAY ELEPHANT MAN... AND OTHER HUMAN ODDITIES.
DON'T CALL THEM FREAKS UNTIL YOU SEE "BEING DIFFERENT" ... THEY'RE MORE LIKE US THAN YOU THINK! "'Being Different' has warmth and humor and is almost miraculously devoid of voyeurism and sensationalism... If a work of art is something which nourishes our spirit and alters our perception, then 'Being Different' is a work of art. As such, it is a very important film." - Maureen Peterson MONTREAL GAZETTE "'Being Different' is Harry Rasky's finest film and that assessment includes Homage to Chagall, for which he received an Oscar nomination, 'Being Different' will almost certainly be nominated for an Oscar." -Jay Scott TORONTO GLOBE AND MAIL 'It was', Harry Rasky said, 'like trying to grab hold of God and ask Him what He meant'.
