Comments of the movie Son-Rise miracle of love
11 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when I was in my early teens. It moved me to tears. I didn't understand autism at the time, I don't think anyone did back then, but it was a truly wonderful story about a family's love for their son. I can remember the scene where the parents checked out a local facility for kids with problems like Raun's, and seeing the goings on at that place scared them into reconsidering and taking over his intervention themselves.

The hard part was watching how hard it was on Raun's sisters. Their parents were obsessed with trying to reach Raun and pull him out of his world. But then they were included on the intervention and they too spent a lot of time locked in the bathroom with him and doing everything he would do. It was heart wrenching, yet very inspirational. I would love to have the movie on DVD to own, cause now I think I would look at it differently, not just as a grown up and a parent, but as a parent of an autistic child.

This movie is a must see, I would recommend this movie to everyone. It is wonderful. I can't say enough good things about it. I love it!
