Storyline

Trudy 'Tru' Walker thought she had the worst life ever and having a father who was always working, a mother who never took her side, and a mentally challenged brother didn't help.

A magnificent film of tenderness and compassion!
5 October 2005 | by (Pennsylvania, USA) – See all my reviews

Clara Bryant plays Trudy Walker, a self-absorbed teen with a twin brother Eddie, who is mentally handicapped, likely a form of autism, though it wasn't discussed. Eddie, played by Shia LaBeouf (Even Stevens), is a very kind and tender young person who lives life very simply. His heart is full of love. Trudy struggles to be understood as the stressed-out teen that she is. Eddie's father struggles with his work as a brain surgeon and with his outrageous temper problem. The mother struggles with maintaining a healthy and balanced household, which is not easy with Tru going through her drama-queen years.

This is the most emotional movie dealing with the subject of the mentally handicapped that I've ever seen. As someone with a friend who has such disabilities, I can say that I never knew the half of what it really is like.

Should you ever be so blessed as to make a friend with autism or similar handicap, you will see that this movie speaks a lot to those closest to the autistic in so many special ways. It also opens your heart to new levels of tenderness and compassion, and your life will never be the same again. I give this movie 10 out of 10 stars.
