fascinating blend
15 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This film, while flawed, is still unique and wonderfully made. An interesting glimpse into autism utilizing real autistic kids as actors(?)/subjects.

Framed in a documentary style, the film adds plenty of artsy camera work and editing, a bit of Psy-Fi and some excellent acting improv.

A fascinating blend.

I understand the comments in a previous review which acknowledges that perhaps it's unfair to burden real autistic kids with a Hollywood perception of having psychic powers. good point. but really, to me that was small part of this film. The most interesting was the actual apparent interaction between the characters and the autistic kids.
