Great movie
13 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. Rob Morrow did such a great job portraying Tourette syndrome accurately and it was an informative movie about TS without being completely about TS. It was a character who happened to have it but who was not defined by it. You really get a sense of how having this disorder affects his life, especially when occasionally the camera will cut to the view as Lyle sees it when he is ticcing. There are so many movies that if they do reference to Tourette syndrome it is in an inaccurate or sometimes rather mean spirited way. It is refreshing to see movies like this one. Another movie that portrays Tourette syndrome well is "The Tic Code" with Gregory Hines. The music for Maze was just incredible, I don't know if there is a soundtrack for this movie but if not, there should be. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a sweet romantic heartwarming story and would like to learn something more about Tourette syndrome.
