The debut feature from A Chip & A Chair Films, IF YOU COULD SAY IT IN WORDS is an indelible, character-driven portrait of two very different but equally broken souls. Nelson is a painter with undiagnosed Asperger's Syndrome, struggling to complete a triptych on the theme of emotions he can only understand on an intellectual level. Sadie is a girl whose big-city dreams were dashed before she crawled home to Philadelphia, where she treads water at a job that's not her career, with a roommate who's not her friend and a bedmate who's not her lover. She is sleeping with her boss, Mark... which would come as a surprise to his wife. For Sadie and Nelson, a one-night stand turns into much more. For the first time, Nelson is overcome by the emotions that he paints. With him, Sadie is freed from the strains and pressures of day-to-day "real life." As the weeks go by, they come to share their secrets freely, but sharing feelings comes slower. Soon however, the jealousies and suspicions of others... Written by
The new edit for the DVD release happened while Gray recovered from shoulder surgery. For a few months, Gray could only move one arm and had planned to spend it catching up on movies he missed while on the festival circuit.

Nelson has the mildest form of Asperger's possible
Nelson has the mildest form of Asperger's possible and is NOT characteristic of typical Aspies. After having lived with a young adult male Aspie for years and enduring meltdowns, multi week to months long shut outs, infuriating procrastination, no follow through, broken promises, lies, complete inability to show compassion, inability to apologize, inability to organize, inability to multitask beyond internet addiction, etc...I was very bummed after the long awaited release of this movie to find a pretty normal Nelson being a loving, attentive boyfriend. If you live with an Aspie,or have been in a relationship with an aspie, you might not even recognize Nelson as one.
