  1. Although this documentary was filmed much earlier than the college entrance scandal, it was so discomforting to see William Macy in a role as a person with a disability. He must have coached his daughter well, because the family's cheating scandal involved the daughter and family faking a disability in order to get extended time on the entrance exams. As a parent of a child with a disability, I can attest as to how incredibly difficult it is to get the extended time, and my child had a well-documented lifelong disability. What the Macy/Huffman family did went far beyond what most people recognize (cheating on exam, paying money to a fake non-profit), and the lack of coverage how the entire family "gamed" the system to the harm of people with disabilities is truly disturbing. When you get extended time for the entrance exams and a special testing site, everyone knows it's for a disability. So the daughter & Macy knew what they were doing, yet only Huffman gets a slap-on-the-wrist for cheating.
