hell breaks loose
30 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

One click on my remote control to make my sand wish lunch at my breakfast bar more complete threw me on a middle of this social mayhem. I'm not too fond of anything way out, ugly or intolerable. When I look back at my days in the service of Mental Health, I did feel compassion but always with a dash of hope it was to repair, rather than maintain... So If you know the story of these "Magnificent Seven" (by the way, very hard to pull out for IMDb, as it is a TV play; and one will invariably get "The Magnificent Seven" Classic and its rerun! But it's there) And if you don't know, this is the portrayal of the true story of J Jackson mother of 3 normal girls and 4 boys affected in their on ways from symptoms that come under the umbrella of Autism. I missed the beginning and was about to miss the rest of it as well but the sandwich lasted long enough for the story to grab me despite my earlier comments and I enjoyed very much the rest of the story leaving all personal judgment aside...(yes if I'd be God, I think I'd done things differently) But the character of J Jackson shows that reality is as it is and one has the choice to make the best of it, and even enjoy its eventual deviation from the norms... Reading one of the reviews that appears to be from someone who was rather well versed with the real mother's persona. There was a lot of criticisms on how this TV work portrait the mother and other facets of this story. But for what I saw and no other knowledge and material to compare with I felt this dramatisation worked for me. My nursing days had their moments too, although remote from the jokes made about "asylums" they sometimes would surpass them. I did not realise that Helena Botham Carter was that actress and was surprised she was that young person I did admire very much in "room with a view" a long time ago, then was even more surprised reading a little more about her bio and filmography...What a pedigree and achievement!
