Chuck Baldwin is running for President? Nothing to do with autism.
26 April 2008 | by (Texas, United States) – See all my reviews

I really did try to finish this movie. But, alas, I could not go past the half way point. For much of the film all I saw were moments of the lives of some of the autistic kids. While interesting maybe for a study, showing kids throwing things while in the nude didn't do anything for me. In fact, it was one of the things that turned me off to it.

I wish there was more on the musical. More than that, I wish it was done in a more professional manner. I am somebody who likes to learn, but this was boring and uninteresting. Trantasia was more interesting than this. I don't recommend anybody going to see this unless they have autistic kids and have enough patience for much of the film to find its kernel of truth. "F"
