When the faces merge in Persona, I see two people bound by loneliness and shame, to the point where they no longer understand who is who—two completely different people and disparate identities becoming one.
Instead of merely putting disabled characters on-screen, Take Shelter examines how they are treated in American society, and allows us to see how ableism is woven into that social fabric, from systemic failings to personal interactions.
