Highly Recommend
26 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Film is an endearing, yet very real glimpse into the daily difficulties of having, and coping with autism. Enjoyed watching the process of the children coming together to create something beyond themselves, and learning to relate to one another in the process. Was refreshing to see them being challenged to do the very opposite of what they are naturally inclined to do and be as autistic children. Or rather what we expect of them. Surprisingly, watching the parents was the most difficult for me. There are moments in the film when it seems the parents have swapped roles and have become more like children themselves. Which gives you the uneasy feeling you get the day you realize your parents are human. Overall film leaves you with a sense of hope. And to hearts that are open, more compassion and understanding. Highly recommend to anyone with an interest in the human condition.
