Molly McKay is a profoundly autistic twenty-something woman who has lived in an institution from a young age following her parents' death in a car accident. When the institution must close due to budget cuts, Molly is left in the charge of her neurotypical, older brother, Buck McKay, an advertising executive and perennial bachelor. Molly, who verbalizes very little and is obsessed with lining up her shoes in neat rows, throws Buck's life into a tailspin as she runs off her nurses and barges naked into a meeting at Buck's agency. When Buck consults Molly's (beautiful) neurologist, Susan Brookes, Dr. Brookes suggests an experimental surgery in which healthy brain cells are harvested from a donor and implanted into Molly's brain. While Buck initially balks at the suggestion, he finally consents to the surgery and Molly makes a miraculous "recovery" from her autism when she begins to speak fluidly and to interact with her brother, caretakers, and the world, in general. Buck begins taking ... Written by
This movie is definitely one of the best movies i've ever seen. Elizabeth Shue was casted perfectly and i can't imagine any one else playing the lead. Another character casted brilliantly was Aaron Eckhart who played Molly's older brother.
Molly McKay(Shue) is autistic. She is a 28 year old woman with the mind of a three year old. When the center she is in closes down because its gone broke, she is then put in the care of her older brother Buck(Eckhart).
She is then chosen to get an operation by some doctors who think that molly's case is fascinating.
Some other familiar faces include Thomas Jane(who plays one of molly's good friend Sam) Jill Hennessy (who plays molly's doctor and brothers girlfriend Susan) and Lucy Lui(who plays Bucks secretary and one of molly's baby sitters) I gave this movie ten out of ten because if mad me laugh,cry, and was romantic. many movies lack those qualities so i advise that you definitely watch this.
